Henry Lamb: Out of the Shadows takes a deeper look into the life and work of this significant and highly skilled British artist.
Showcasing around sixty works drawn from both private and public collections, including Tate, Imperial War Museum and The Ashmolean Museum, the exhibition uncovers Lamb's development as an artist from his early career and influences, right through to his deep involvement in family life during his later years in Wiltshire.
This showing of the exhibition features two major Poole works not seen in the Salisbury exhibition in 2018. These are The Tea Party, 1926, which depicts Lamb's Poole residence in Hill Street and The Level Crossing, Poole, painted in 1953. Also featured are many studies and paintings of Poole's urban scene and unemployed workers in the 1920s, highlighting Lamb's skill at preserving the community's history in some of his best work.
Poole Museum will host a series of events and activities throughout the exhibition, suitable for all ages, including an Art Detective Trail and specialist talks. Please see the What's On section of our website for more information.
