Sculpture by Joseph Gott (1786-1860) from the first half of the 19th century.
With signature (as shown in photos).
British sculptor Joseph Gott was the son of Benjamin Gott, a wool producer from Leeds, Yorkshire. He joined the Royal Academy Schools in 1805 and won a silver medal the following year. Between 1820 and 1848, Gott exhibited thirteen times at the Royal Academy.
In 1822, Gott was sent to Rome in retirement by painter Sir Thomas Lawrence, who also introduced him to Antonio Canova. Initially, Gott was very successful, receiving numerous commissions from English visitors to Rome. He was particularly known for his terracotta groups and sensitive sculptures of children and animals.
