The present early work by Arthur J. Elsley was displayed in the Royal Academy in 1891. Evocative of youthful frivolity and childhood bliss, Friend or Foe? is a highly skilled representation of the type of subject for which Elsley was best known. A widely popular artist in Victorian and Edwardian England, Elsley was first renowned for his depictions of canine subjects, and later, genre scenes focusing on images of childhood. His shift towards paintings of youthful play was influenced by celebrated Victorian painter Frederick Morgan, with whom he shared a studio.
