    An idyllic landscape of the idealised British landscape by John Clayton Adams. Characterised by his broad technique, use of rich colour and sensitive handling of light.

    • A nineteenth-century painter of the idyllic and idealised British landscape, John Clayton Adams' landscapes are characterised by his broad technique, use of rich colour and sensitive handling of light.

       

      Adams studied at the Bloomsbury Art School in London before studying under the English landscape painter William Wilthieu Fenn. Adams first exhibited at the Royal Academy of Art in London at the age of nineteen and went on to exhibit over seventy-five paintings there throughout the course of his career.

       

      Inspired by the southern counties of England, in particular Surrey, where Adams lived and worked from 1873 until his death in 1906, he painted pleasantly naturalistic landscapes, truthful in detail but in general idealised, creating a romanticised arcadia where lifes' pleasure and abundance appears everlasting.
