Sir John Gilbert

The Guildhall Art Gallery in London is preparing an exhibition of
works by Sir John Gilbert (1817-1897). Gilbert was a prolific
Victorian artist who worked both in oils and watercolours, and was
also an illustrator. A large number of his later works, painted
mainly between the late 1870s and the early 1890s, were donated to
the gallery by the artist himself, and there was a later bequest by
his brother George Gilbert. However the gallery does not have
examples of his earlier paintings and would be grateful for
information on this period of his work.
