John Michael Rysbrack

(1694-1770), Sculptor

Sitter in 7 portraits
Artist associated with 15 portraits
Rysbrack arrived in England from Antwerp in 1720. Before this time, there was little demand for portraits sculpted from life: most sculpture was commissioned for funeral monuments. Skilled and confident, Rysbrack achieved almost instant success. In a lengthy career, his output included busts of sitters such as Alexander Pope and George II, statues from history and modern life, decorative sculpture and monuments.
