By the time he made his first return visit to the UK in 1844, 'Gibson of Rome' was a famous artist and soon became one of Prince Albert?s favourite sculptors, producing several portraits of Queen Victoria. Timed to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Gibson?s death, this display presents a selection of more than 30 works from Gibson?s important bequest to the Royal Academy. These include marble sculptures like his Narcissus, plaster reliefs such as The Meeting of Hero and Leander as well as drawings from his studio. Despite the status that Gibson enjoyed during his lifetime, his reputation faded during the 20th century and this will be the first temporary exhibition to focus solely on his work.00Exhibition: Royal Academy of Arts, London, Great Britain (08.09.2016 - 18.12.2016)."@en ;
