Although the detail on the musculature leaves a bit to be desired,
this study, perhaps unfinished, shows some of Etty's talent for capturing the male form.

  1. I think this was one of the first Etty works I found on line. Utterly stunning. That mysterious background, the red wall, or is it a cloth and the fireplace. All adding to this modest work. I was particularly inspired by the models build. Proportionately good, yet I'm thinking fairly short. This usually leads to a dominance of the torso. Very similar to my own build. This guy has go "stick work" down to perfection.
