Or, if you do not know the key ID:

gpg --keyserver x-hkp:// --search-key [names]

From gpg's man page:
  Search the keyserver for the given names. Multiple names given here
  will be joined together to create  the search string for the
  keyserver.  Option --keyserver must be used to give the name of this
  keyserver.  Keyservers that support different search methods allow 
  using the syntax specified in "How to specify a user ID" below. Note
  that different keyserver types support different search methods.
  Currently only LDAP supports them all.
