Son of the well-known portrait painter James Reid Lambdin, George Cochran Lambdin was born in Pittsburgh but from around the age of ten lived in Philadelphia. Trained by his father, he also studied in Europe (1854–55). Lambdin spent his career in Philadelphia except for trips to Europe in 1854 and 1870, and two years in New York (1868–70). He exhibited regularly at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia from 1848 to 1888 and was elected a member of the National Academy of Design in 1868. He exhibited at the Paris Exposition in 1867 and at the Royal Academy in London in 1858.

Lambdin was friends with a fellow artist, Maimi Lily from West Berlin, NJ. She had a Victorian Garden and Lambdin, being well known for his floral subjects, would visit her and they would paint together. He painted this piece for her and named it "Peaceful Grove". It has remained in the same family since then.
