Les Lambson

The works of Les Lambson have attained international recognition through his development of a technique and an idiom unique in the history of painting. Inspired by the honored artist, Shoji Hamada, on whom the Japanese government conferred the title National Living Treasure, his paintings fuse the Oriental and Occidental aesthetics, an eloquence of disciplined simplicity.

Lambson was born in the Big Lost River Valley in Idaho on June 14, 1921. He traveled the world and collected various baccalaureate and graduate degrees in the field of fine arts. He served on the faculties of California Western University, Brigham Young University and Northern Arizona University.

His work is distributed throughout the world, residing with prominent statesmen, entertainers, corporations and the permanent collections of universities and museums.

Lambson painted nearly 1,000 images of various sizes in his active career. Most were by commission. They`ve sold only directly from the artist or by selected galleries. Few are ever offered for sale today as they`re true collectibles of increasing value.
