Henry Lamb (1883-1960) is a Persephone Books favourite, partly because of his famous portraits of Lytton Strachey and Evelyn Waugh and partly because – well, his work is superb. There is an exhibition in Salisbury until September, details here, and a selling exhibition which finished yesterday at Messums in Wiltshire. As with the posters last week, we shall indulge in some fantasy buying. Village Scene, possibly Coombe Bissett is an (undated) watercolour that was on sale (but must have sold) for £2650.
