Sculptor, draughtsman and teacher, born in Paris. His father was the Australian painter George Lambert, his brother the musician Constant Lambert. Educated in London, Lambert was apprenticed, 1918–23, with the sculptor Derwent Wood; assisted his father briefly in his studio; and attended part-time life classes, 1919–27, at Chelsea Polytechnic. Although he worked on Wood’s Machine Gun Corps monument at Hyde Park Corner, Lambert’s own sculpture, while remaining largely figurative, took a much more modern turn. He was prolific, between 1925–34 exhibiting nearly 150 works, having his first solo show at the Claridge Gallery in 1927. His fourth and final one-man show in his lifetime was at Reid and Lefevre in 1934, and it was left to the Belgrave Gallery to give him a posthumous exibition in 1988.
