Born in Portadown, Co. Armagh, Charles Lamb is notable for his depictions of the Irish landscape and people. He trained at the Belfast School of Art and Metropolitan School of Art in Dublin and like many of his predecessors, travelled to Brittany from 1926-7 portraying the lives of the local people. He displayed the same aptitude in works such as the present as he did for capturing the lives of those in the West of Ireland, in a manner akin to his contemporary and mentor Sean Keating. 

-----------------------------------

Né à Portadown, Co. Armagh, Charles Lamb est connu pour ses représentations du paysage et de la population irlandaise. Il a suivi une formation à la Belfast School of Art et à la Metropolitan School of Art de Dublin et, comme nombre de ses prédécesseurs, a voyagé en Bretagne de 1926 à 1927 pour dépeindre la vie de la population locale. Dans des œuvres telles que celle-ci, il a fait preuve de la même aptitude à capturer la vie des habitants de l'ouest de l'Irlande, à la manière de son contemporain et mentor Sean Keating.
