William Lamb Studio
14 September 2019
The William Lamb Studio was built by William Lamb A.R.S.A. as his working Studio in 1934. It – and his artworks – was bequeathed to Montrose on his death in 1951. Since 1978 it has been run as a small gallery museum and contains an outstanding collection of Lamb’s internationally important works – sculptures in stone, wood, plaster & bronze as well as etchings, watercolours and portfolios of preparatory drawings.
His portraits and figurative people cover not just the ordinary fisher-people at their work – but the celebrities – Hugh MacDiarmid, Violet Jacob, Edward Baird, Alfred Hollins & David Foggie. Plus his royal commissions too – the late Queen Elizabeth and her daughters the Princesses Margaret Rose (2) and Elizabeth (6) cast in 1933. Friends will act as guides to the collections and talk about the people, great and small, and Lamb’s extraordinary life and artworks.
