Henry Lamb: Out of the Shadows

Saturday 26 May 2018Sunday 30 September 2018

Henry Lamb was one of the leading British figurative painters of the first part of the 20th century. A close friend of Augustus John, patron of Stanley Spencer and friends with members of the Bloomsbury Group, he was a founder member of the Camden Town Group in 1911. Portraiture played an important role in his career as a painter, but his townscapes and landscapes as well as his early subject pictures of Ireland and Brittany and his work in both World Wars reveal him to be a painter of considerable range and talent. This exhibition is the first major retrospective of Henry Lamb’s work since 1984.
