Lammert van der Tonge lived and worked in Amsterdam until he traveled all over the Netherlands to paint. His subjects were diverse, including farm interiors, landscapes and portraits. Later in his career he started painting flower still lifes. He learned the painting trade from Eduard Frankfort, who achieved great fame in his time and was a popular teacher. He also studied at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, where he was taught by August Allebé and Nicolaas van der Waay. From around 1902, Van der Tonge settled in Laren, where his paintings were very popular. In 1913 he co-founded the annual exhibitions in Hotel Hamdorff in Laren.
