William Etty

I spent a few days at my brothers in York after Christmas and went to an exhibition at York Art Gallery of William Etty.  I like to take my time at exhibitions ……. but my brother and nephew aren’t interested in Art so unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to look at the paintings properly.  If you’ve ever been with anyone like that you will know what I mean – stand in front of painting for one minute or less then on to the next.  We must have seen the 2 rooms in half an hour.

I can see why he was controversial in his lifetime because there was a lot of flesh on display.   william etty art and controversy
