American art critic, art historian, writer and independent scholar, who published regularly in the International Herald-Tribune, 1969–2004 and occasionally in other publications in English (the New York Times, Art in America, Art News), and French (L’Oeil, Connaissance des Arts). From 1956 on, Gibson published a number of books, articles, essays and poems in both English and French.

Gibson was born inside the American Embassy in Brussels, the son of American Ambassador Hugh S. Gibson and his Belgian wife Ynès Reyntiens. After schooling in eight different establishments, six different countries and three different languages (including the Collège Jean de Brébeuf in Montreal and the University of Louvain in Belgium), he settled in Paris in 1958 where he lived until his death on 7 June 2017, aged 87.
