George W.T. Lambert
Birth: Sep. 13, 1873
Death: May 28, 1930

Artist. Born in Russia to American/English parents, he settled in Australia and during the 1910's and 1920's was that country's most celebrated painter. Lambert was particularly noted for his World War I scenes (he accompanied Australian forces on their ill-fated Gallipoli campaign in 1915) and portraits, painted in a conservative manner. His work fell out of favor almost immediately after his death, although several of his canvases still hang in national galleries in Australia and England. He was buried at South Head Cemetery in Sydney, but in 1931 a cenotaph was placed for him at the grave of his father, George Washington Lambert, in London's Brompton Cemetery. He was the father of composer Constant Lambert and the grandfather of music producer Kit Lambert. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
