George Lambert, 1873-1930: Art and Artifice
In this long-awaited monograph art historian Anne Gray draws upon a mass of documents to reveal Lambert's considerable achievements in his art and his life. Biographical information is integrated with detailed analysis of the works of art, many of which are now regarded as major examples of early twentieth-century art. Gray traces Lambert's emergence from a rural environment and recounts how Lambert's exposure to Paris, and to the art of the British moderns, ran parallel to an increasingly complex personal life. A sympathetic account is given of his marriage to Amy Lambert, his relationship with Thea Proctor, and his many friendships with artists and local eccentrics. Above all, Lambert is revealed as an artist who worked at his art with unfailing dedication, frequently pushing himself to the point of exhaustion, and finally to death.
