George Lambert (1873-1930)

hongi kindly pointed to me to this retrospective exhibition of works by this Australian artist:
http://nga.gov.au/Exhibition/Lambert/Default.cfm?MnuID=1
There are pages of good images which are worth looking through. His work seems highly enjoyable, if sometimes a bit too self-conscious. I have picked out just three pictures that appealed to me in different ways. Firstly this 'Equestrian Portrait of a Boy' from 1905, an Edwardian bravura piece which reminds me of Lavery and Orpen.
