Title: PORTRAIT SAID TO BE WILLIAM ETTY R.A. (1787- 1849)
Oil on artists board
27cm x 20cm
U.K.
Inscribed to verso: ETTY THE ARTIST
Comparison with known portraits of Etty suggsts that this could indeed depict the artist. One suggestion is that it might be by a fellow artist who watched Etty while the latter was concentrating on a painting of his own. Etty was at the Royal Academy Schools in 1807 and it is tempting to suggest that this painting was sketched during a class at the RA. The Lander Gallery has not identified any portraits identical to or related to this one. This portrait was formerly attributed to John Opie.
