Additional Information about the Print

The portrait of Etty was accompanied by a poem by Thomas Campbell entitled “The Painter”, which concludes:

... serenely quiet art!
By Heaven and love both taught to lend
The milder solace to the heart,
The sacred image of a friend.

William Etty R.A. (1787-1849) made a speciality of the nude and was described as a painter of sheen and sinuosity.
