The Lambs’ Fine Arts Collection, Archives and Memorabilia


The Lambs is not only a social club but a historical society. The paintings and memorabilia which hang on the walls of The Lambs form an intimate and unique story of New York Stage from 1874 to the present, creating a veritable living history of American Theatre. Many of these paintings and portraits are by renowned artists such as James Montgomery Flagg, Howard Chandler Christy, Hubert Vos, Robert Reid, and Everett Raymond Kinstler. The paintings fall into two general categories; the Shepherds’ (presidents) portraits, and the nudes. All the artwork and artifacts are owned, maintained and are being restored by The Lambs Foundation, which gladly accepts tax-deductible donations to be used toward the restoration work.
