Biography

Maurice Lambert, elder son of the distinguished Australian painter George Lambert (1873 - 1930) was born in Paris on 25 June 1901. He studied under Derwent Wood RA at the Royal College of Art, London, from 1918 to 1923, then worked as Wood's assistant, 1924-25. Lambert also attended Chelsea Polytechnic between 1919 and 1924. His work of the late 1920s and 1930s shows the influence of European Modernism on British sculpture between the wars. He held his first solo exhibition at the Claridge Gallery in London in 1927, then at Reid and Lefevre in 1932 and 1934, and was a member of the Seven and Five Society from 1928 to 1931. Lambert first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1938 and after the Second World War showed there annually for the next two decades. He was elected an Associate in 1941 and a Royal Academician in 1952, whilst he was master of sculpture at the Royal Academy Schools from 1950 to 1958. Lambert died in London on 17 August 1964.
