"With him was a friend called Henry Lamb, I think, a fellow artist"

British painter Henry Taylor Lamb (1883-1960) was born in Australia and studied art in Paris.

Lamb was awarded the Military Cross for his efforts during WW1 in the Royal Medical Corps.  During the Second World War, he deployed his artistic talents by producing official paintings.

Lamb helped found the Camden Town Group of English Post-Impressionist artists and  later became a member of the Royal Academy. He was also a Trustee of the National Portrait Gallery from 1942 and of the Tate Gallery from 1944-51.
