More about this artwork

Step into a serene moment with William Etty’s enchanting painting, "Sleeping Female Nude." This poignant work by one of the 19th century’s foremost British painters famous for his depictions of the nude figure, captures the essence of tranquility and raw beauty.The painting portrays a woman, who lies asleep in an unguarded and peaceful pose. Etty's meticulous attention to the subtleties of human form and flesh is evident in the soft, rounded curves of the subject's back, hips, and legs, draped elegantly across a subtly detailed white sheet. The warmth of her skin tone against the cool, shadowed backdrop creates a tender contrast that invites viewers to appreciate the quietude of the scene.Notably, the composition includes a small, ornately designed vase and a dish beside the resting figure, which add a classical touch referencing the historic appreciation of the human form in art. The backdrop opens to a vague, pastoral scene, suggesting serenity and the connection of the human form with nature.William Etty’s prowess in using rich color palettes and his capability to convey deep forthrightness through classic themes are apparent in this work. "Sleeping Female Nude" is not just a celebration of artistic skill, but a testimony to the beauty found in moments of quiet repose.

William Etty was an English artist best known for his historical paintings featuring nude figures. He was the first significant British painter of nudes and still lifes. Born in York, he left school at 12 and became a printer in Hull. After seven years, he finished his apprenticeship and moved to London, where in 1807 entered the schools of the Royal Academy. There he studied under Thomas Lawrence and learned by copying the works of other artists.
