Son of the well known portrait painter and miniaturist James Reid Lambdin (1807-1889), 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 in 1854-55. Although Lambdin's exact itinerary is unknown, in 1855 he did study in Munich with William Henry Furness, Jr. (1827-1867). Lambdin spent his career in Philadelphia except for his trips to Europe in 1854 and again in 1870, and his two years in New York in 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.
