John Bacon the Younger (1777-1859) was trained by his father, and entered the Royal Academy in 1789, exhibiting between 1792 and 1824. He took over his father's business in 1799 and apparently retired about 1830, having had a successful career in which he produced portrait busts and monuments. — British Museum
