NOTES: Cadbury-Brown designed a new home for the Royal Academy's library in what had been the Gibson Gallery in a Victorian addition to Burlington House of 1866. Originally designed to exhibit the work of John Gibson RA, the redesigned space provides bookshelves on the main level and a gallery in addition to reading room and staff desks. The sculpture is placed in front of the staircase up to the gallery. See RIBA134068 for a colour version of this image.
