William Etty
Birth: Mar. 10, 1787
Death: Nov. 13, 1849

Painter. Studying in England and Venice, Etty became famous for painting nudes (he was once considered the 'first pornographer'!). His work is exhibited in many major British galleries and often incorporate mythological themes. Although much of his work was created in London, Etty later moved to York where a statue of the artist now stands in front of the city's art gallery. His tomb is nearby, at the edge of a churchyard and picturesquely framed by the arcading of the ruined St Mary's Abbey. (bio by: Mark McManus)
