Born into a large family of millers, from an early age he showed interest in painting. In accordance with the wishes of his father, etty for 7 years studied with an engraver in hull. Etty began his training by creating sketches of landscapes, copying various images, drawings, printed editions, etc[. In 1806, at the invitation of an uncle who supported his desire to study art, came to London, and in 1807 entered the Royal Academy of arts, where his mentor was Henry Fuseli. In 1811, after many attempts on the wall of the talented students of the Academy there was a picture of young William etty "Telemachus rescuing Antiope".

A great influence on William etty in those years was provided by the artist Thomas Lawrence, in the house where etty lived while studying in London.

In 1816, etty briefly visited Paris and Florence.

In 1820 his "coral Seekers", shown at the Royal Academy, attracted great attention. Even bigger success was the painting "Cleopatra's Arrival in Cilicia", shown in the next year.

In 1822 he went to Italy, where most of the time spent in Venice studying Venetian old masters (such as Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese) and gaining experience with color.

In 1840 and 1841, I made a pilgrimage to the Netherlands to study the paintings by Dutch artists, including Rubens in the churches and public galleries in this country.
