Gott entered the Royal Academy in 1805, where he received a silver medal in 1806 and exhibited thirteen times between 1820 and 1848. Sent to Rome, he became part of the school of British sculptors working there and was introduced to Canova. He had an unconventional, almost light-hearted approach to his subject matter
