Richard Cockle Lucas (1800-1883), Sculptor

Sitter in 44 portraits
Artist associated with 54 portraits
At the age of twelve Lucas was apprenticed to an uncle, a cutler at Winchester. Having become proficient at carving knife handles, he decided to train as a sculptor. In 1828 he entered the Royal Academy Schools, and from that year he was a regular contributor to the Royal Academy. Over the next thirty years he exhibited over a hundred works at the Academy, the British Institution, and the Suffolk Street Gallery of the Society of British Artists, including busts, medallions, and classical subjects.
