Artist of the moment………..Charles Partridge Adams

 

 

 

Charles Partridge Adams was an American landscape painter renown for his images of Colorado. Charles Adams was born in Franklin, Massachusetts in the year 1858. His family moved west to Denver in 1876 and within a year he found employment at a bookstore.

Adams is considered by many historians to be the best Colorado landscape painter in history. One of Adams favorite subjects were the wonderful snow covered peaks of Colorado. Other popular locations he painted include Massachusetts and Colorado.

One of his first teachers was named Helen Chain, she was a student of the famed painter George Inness. The artist studied with various teachers for brief periods of time, but he didn’t attend a formal artistic academy and remained largely self taught. He honed his skills by going on camping trips, for as long as  three months, where he just sketched and painted the local landscapes.

Charles Partridge Adams passed away in 1942.
