'Long-overdue reassessment ... an important figure in the history of early-20th-century British painting' - Country Life
A richly illustrated survey of the work of the artist Henry Lamb
A draughtsman of remarkable ability, matching even his mentor Augustus John, Henry Lamb (1883-1960) was a founder-member of the Camden Town Group, exhibiting at their inaugural exhibition in 1911. He was a powerful and original War artist, and an engaging and sensitive portrait painter, whose group portraits, in particular, are as successful as those by any British painter of the age.
Accompanying an exhibition at Salisbury Museum in 2018 and Poole Museum in 2019, Henry Lamb: Out of the Shadows will focus on over 50 works by the artist from across his career. As well as loans from major national collections, the group will include significant works from private collections, including a substantial archive from the artist's family and a number of re-discovered masterpieces. The catalogue will also feature an introductory essay by Lamb's cousin, the writer Thomas Pakenham who knew the artist well.
