‘Men thinking, and women tranquil’: John Gibson’s Portraiture Practice

2018

Abstract

The sculptor John Gibson was a vocal critic of the genre of portraiture, and pitched his reputation around his classical ‘ideal’ works. Yet during his lifetime he actually produced numerous portraits, including Tate’s bust of William Bewick. This article is the first to examine Gibson’s portraiture practice, and its artistry, as a whole.
