Etty R.A. (Attributed to), William (1787 - 1849)
Drapery Study. Oil on paper. c.1810. Verso: part of a life study in red and white chalks. Provenance: F. R. Meatyard c.1955; John Manning; Arnold Fellows. 15.25x9.25 inches. Framed: 24.5x17.75 inches.


Etty entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1807. Judging from the combination of the beautiful drapery study on the recto, and an academic life study on verso, this sheet presumably dates from his time there. A rare, clothed subject from the artist.
