  • George Lambert: Gallipoli and Palestine landscapes

    11 Aug 2007 to 28 Oct 2007
    Guest curator: Janda Gooding

    The Australian War Memorial has the largest collection of landscape paintings by George Lambert (1873–1930). This exhibition traces Lambert's work as an official war artist on his first journey to Palestine and the Sinai in 1918. It also includes paintings Lambert completed during the Australian Historical Mission to Gallipoli in 1919. This focused exhibition allows viewers to consider a specific and little-known body of work by this important Australian artist. The exhibition includes small panel paintings, drawings and watercolours, and takes as its main theme Lambert's representation of significant landscapes and how these connect to individual and national memories of war.
