Henry Lamb

To the Salisbury Museum to see a good show of Henry Lamb’s work. The Gallery isn’t big enough for a major retrospective, but it was a good effort. The challenge with someone like Lamb is to persuade people to come and see pictures by a painter few can have come across. A secret weapon in this case turned out to be the extremely well-known portrait of the young Evelyn Waugh, which one wants to say anyone would recognise.

Charming staff made the visit special by proudly showing me some of their Rex Whistler archive.
