George Lambert (1873-1930), artist, spent some years of his youth on the land, mustering, shearing and enjoying the company of bush characters. A talent for drawing led him to art school in Sydney, which he left in1900. After two years in Paris, where he trained at the Académie Colarossi, he returned to London, where he was based until the end of 1920. Dashing and vigorous, he was a popular member of a circle of artists, including many Australians, who frequented the Chelsea Arts Club. Alf Vincent, a Melbourne-based Bulletin cartoonist, visited England in 1912. Three years later, in Sydney, he cut his own throat.
