Later Victorian Portraits Catalogue
John Pettie (1839-1893), Painter
Hilda Orchardson’s childhood impression of Pettie was of ‘… extraordinarily blue eyes, a nondescript nose, fresh complexion, and friendly energetic ways; he simply radiated energy and kindliness’. 
His appearance in 1878: ‘He was rather grave of countenance, looking more like a University Don than an artist, though, I believe, to intimate friends he could be very free and easy.’
