About the artist
Adam's artistic journey took him to Rome, Venice, and Russia, where he created works in various mediums, including watercolour, pastel, and primarily oil. His subject matter ranged from landscapes and portraits to still life, but he was most admired for his genre paintings and interiors.
In 1912, Adam co-founded the Society of Eight, a group of artist friends who showcased their works at the New Gallery in Shandwick Place, Edinburgh. The original members included David Alison, FCB Cadell, John Lavery, Samuel Peploe, and James Paterson, with later additions of Duncan Grant, William MacTaggart, and William Gillies. The society aimed to bridge the Glasgow-Edinburgh divide, but it appears to have disbanded with the onset of war in 1939.
