Picture of the Month – Daniel Lambert

Daniel Lambert

Daniel Lambert

This portrait of Daniel Lambert, in the British (English) School style, circa 18th century, is in the medium of oil on paper and was donated to the museum in 1992.

Daniel Lambert (1770-1809) was the gaol keeper, sportsman and animal breeder from Leicester, famous for his unusually large size.

The painting was chosen as Picture of the Month by Aileen because it represents the warm, jolly and over indulgent time of Christmas.
