Tilly Kettle (1735-1786), Painter

Artist associated with 19 portraits
Tilly Kettle was a painter who was active in India. Following training at Shipley's, St Martin's Lane, and the Duke of Richmond's Academies, he painted portraits in Oxford and the Midlands. Kettle travelled to India in 1768, probably at the suggestion of Admiral Sir Samuel Cornish, who sat for him with Thomas Parry and Rear-Admiral Sir Richard Kempenfeldt in the same year.
