Lady Russell-Cotes

John Mossman was the eldest son of William Mossman, and studied under his father in Glasgow, where he spent practically all his life. Most of his works are to be found in Scotland, and of these his native city has a very large share, including the statues of Peel (1853), Livingstone (1876), and Thomas Campbell (1877).

Mossman exhibited at the Royal Academy, 1868-1879, and at the Royal Scottish Academy, 1840-1886, He was elected an Honorary Member of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1885.

The Russell-Cotes commissioned many busts of themselves which can be seen throughout the museum.
