Friday 22 March, 6:30pm Bookings
Primrose Campbell outlines the turbulent life of her grandfather, the artist HenryLamb. It stretched from Queen Victoria to Queen Elizabeth, violently broken by two world wars. He rebelled from the world of his youth among Manchester dons, moved through bohemian pre-1914 Chelsea, Paris and the wilds of western Ireland, to settled family life in Coombe Bisset, where he lived and painted for over 30 years.
Lamb was an intimate of Lytton Strachey, of Augustus John and Stanley Spencer, and ofthe grand eccentric hostess and patroness Ottoline Morrell. As a doctor-soldier he won an MC in Macedonia and at the end of his career he was a Royal Academician.
