LATEST IMAGES OF THE RACECOURSE, ESPECIALLY ROYAL ASCOT, BY LOWRYESQUE AND LIGHTHEARTED EQUESTRIAN ARTIST, DEAUVILLE BASED ELIE LAMBERT

SOLO SHOW AT THE OSBORNE STUDIO GALLERY 19TH JUNE UNTIL 14TH JULY, TO COINCIDE WITH ROYAL ASCOT

Elie Lambert, whose life has been consecrated to The Horse, as gentleman jockey, bloodstock agent, racing correspondent and now full time equestrian painter, will be showing his new work to coincide with Royal Ascot. His work is described by The Osborne Studio Gallery as a ‘thrilling, altogether novel depiction of The Turf’. He does not look back to past masters, such as George Stubbs, Sir Alfred Munnings, or even Toulouse-Lautrec, for inspiration.

The late Sir Peter 0’Sullevan (former chairman of The Osborne Studio Gallery) said that Elie Lambert’s ‘colourful long legged horses are evidently shod by Louboutin.’ He described Lambert as ‘Lowryesque’ and ‘compulsive’.
