The Adams family were three generations of artists and photographers based in Reading. The family business began with Walton Adams (1842-1934) who was the co-inventor of the dry-plate process and could list Queen Victoria amongst his most notable sitters. Of Walton’s seven children, two followed their father into the photography business and at Sulis Fine Art we are pleased to introduce you to artworks by his highly accomplished sons Marcus Adams (1875-1959) and Chris Adams (1867-1960). The stylistic evolution across the three generations of artists is emblematic of wider evolving taste in art in Britain. Christopher’s art-deco miniatures and Marcus’s realist drawings of the Swiss Alps and beauty spots around England are replaced by the looser impressionistic style of Marcus’ son, Gilbert Adams (1906-1996), and the abstract compositions of Gilbert’s wife Rosalind Adams (née Thuillier, 1939-2015). The Adams Family Collection includes a large number of portraits and landscapes by Gilbert as well as pastels by Rosalind. Indeed, this expansive body of work presents a complete picture of the talented family and there is something within to satisfy every taste. Many works in the collection are signed and most are in excellent condition. You can read more about the Adams Family Collection here.
