George Lambert (1700-1765)

George Lambert is thought to have studied under John Wootton and was then employed as a scene painter at Covent Garden and the St. James Theatre in London. In 1730, he entered into collaboration with both William Hogarth and Samuel Scott, who (respectively) painted the figures and water in some of Lambert's landscape compositions. In 1735 and 1736, Lambert worked on the landscape in Hogarth's big paintings for St. Bartholomew's Hospital. Shortly before his death, he became President of the Society of Artists.
