This exhibition takes a deeper look into the life and work of this significant and highly skilled British artist, Henry Lamb. The exhibition showcases around sixty works drawn from private and public collections, including Tate, the 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 in his later years in Wiltshire.
The exhibition also features many studies and paintings of Poole’s urban scene and unemployed workers in the 1920s, preserving the community’s history in some of his best work. This showing of the exhibition features two major Poole works not seen in the Salisbury exhibition in 2018. These are his 1926 work, The Tea Party, which depicts Lamb’s Poole residence in Hill Street and The Level Crossing, Poole, painted in 1953.
Poole Museum will host a series of events and activities throughout the exhibition, suitable for all ages including Art Detective Trails and talks from experts.
