A son of the portraitist James Reid Lambdin, George Cochran Lambdin was born in Pittsburgh and moved to Philadelphia at an early age. Trained by his father, he began to exhibit at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1848, and studied in Europe during the mid-1850s. Other than another trip to Rome in 1870 and a two-year stay in New York from 1868 to 1870, Lambdin spent his entire career in Philadelphia. 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 New York in 1868.

Lambdin was especially noted for the floral still life subjects that he began to paint around 1857. He settled in the Germantown section of Philadelphia and cultivated a garden famous for its roses. After 1870 his paintings of roses were extremely popular and widely reproduced as chromolithographs.
