William Adam (1846-1931)
William Adam was born in Tweedsmouth, England in 1846 and studied in Paris, Glasow, and Buenos Aires before arriving in the United States in the late 19th century. In 1894 Adam moved to Pacific Grove on the Monterey Peninsula, where he took up residence in a cottage that still exists today on Central Avenue. Widely referred to as “Professor”, Adam supplemented his income giving art lessons.
William Adam’s Monterey Peninsula works are largely focused on subject matter within an easy walk of his cottage, and often of his cottage garden itself. He frequented and painted the dunes and coast of the Monterey Bay, as well as the quaint and historic old adobes of Monterey. While in California, where he lived until his death in 1931, Adam exhibited his works at the California State Fair, the Del Monte Art Gallery, the Berkeley Art Association, and the Sorosis Club.
