She and Breton separated in 1943. Lamba later married David Hare, an American sculptor.[4]

Lamba participated in the Surrealist Movement between 1934-1947.[5] It is claimed she had a sexual affair with fellow artist Frida Kahlo.

For the last five years of her life, Lamba suffered from Alzheimer's disease.[6][7]
