pay at the canadian armoured divison henry lamb

Pay at the Canadian Armoured Division by Henry Lamb was painted in 1942. It was apparently a gift to Bristol from the Imperial War Museum in 1947. The Bristol site says : ‘Henry Lamb was appointed a full-time war artist by the War Artist Advisory Committee. He was placed with the Twelfth Canadian Army Tank Battalion who were training in England. Lamb painted highly individualistic portraits of soldiers of all ranks, men and women. He portrayed the soldiers training, at work and the rare occasions of rest.’
