Summary
Summary: William Etty, R.A. (1787-1849) was one of the most prolific and successful British artists working in the first half of the nineteenth century. He was celebrated for his skills as a colourist and ability to emulate the art of the old masters. Etty focused almost exclusively on the nude and contemporaries were quick to acknowledge the artist's ability to translate the studies he made in the life-class into large-scale, highly imaginative historical compositions. At the same time, he faced repeated critical condemnation for what was seen as his preoccupation with 'pulpy' flesh and his perverse interest in the female nude. Exhibition: York Art Gallery, from 25.06.2011 to 22.01.2012
