The Royal Academy of Arts will be marking the 150th anniversary of John Gibson's death with a special exhibition of his work.

Gibson was the most successful British sculptor of his generation, and spent his formative years studying and in Rome with the famous neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova. When he returned to the UK in 1844 he quickly became one of Prince Albert's favourite sculptors, producing several portraits of Queen Victoria.

This exhibition includes more than thirty of his works, including famous marble sculptures (like Narcissus), plaster reliefs (like The Meeting of Hero and Leander), as well as some drawings from his studio.
