Biography

Georgina Lara was a painter of naïve farmyard and village scenes. Very little is known about her life but she did exhibit one painting at the British Institution and 16 paintings at Suffolk Street. Lara’s work can be recognised because of her tendency to put large numbers of small, doll like figures into her canvasses. For a time she was mistakenly known as George Lara.
