Maurice Lambert made several portrait busts, which are considered amongst his finest works. Other sitters include the poet and biographer Dame Edith Sitwell (1887–1964) and the composer Sir William Turner Walton (1902–1983). This bust was exhibited at the Lefevre Gallery, London, in 1932.
The son of painter and sculptor George Washington Thomas Lambert and brother of composer and conductor Constant Lambert, Maurice was a successful sculptor. His first one-man exhibition was at the Claridge Gallery, London, in 1927. Throughout the 1930s he carried out commissions for ocean liners. From 1950 to 1958 he was a master at the Royal Academy Sculpture School, becoming a full Royal Academician in 1952. Lambert continued to receive commissions until his death in 1964.
