George Lambert: Gallipoli and Palestine Landscapes, Exhibition

In early 2007 the Australian War Memorial appointed Charles Green and Lyndell Brown as official artists to Iraq and Afghanistan. Charles and Lyndell are based in Melbourne and work collaboratively on the same paintings.  Their experiences as official artists travelling with the Australian Defence Forces bear some similarity to those of George Lambert ninety years ago - having to work quickly and pack up at a moment's notice when the Forces need to move. They will be in Canberra to talk at the symposium this Friday 29 June about their time in Iraq and Afghanistan. There is also a great interview with them podcast on Radio National as well as a feature on George Lambert as a war artist. Follow this link:
