Kenneth Miller Adams
Mixed Bouquet

circa 1930


Housed in a custom hand-carved gold leaf frame, outer dimensions measure 29 ¼ x 33 ¼ x 2 inches. Image size is 20 x 24 inches. Kenneth Adams was born in Kansas, and first started his art career in Topeka during 1913. He studied with artist G.M. Stone, who became the basis for his formal education that began three years later at the Art Institute of Chicago. Adams served in WWI, and when he was discharged, he moved to New York City to study at the Art Students League. Soon after completing courses there, Adams moved abroad to study Italian and French art. In 1924, Adams was back in Kansas, where his friend Andrew Dasburg encouraged him to move to New Mexico. Adams settled in Taos, and remained there for the next twelve years. He was the youngest and last member of the Taos Society of Artists. Adams became a professor at the University of New Mexico in Taos in 1929. In 1938, he moved to Albuquerque because he was awarded a Carnegie Corporation Grant to become the first artist-in-residence at the University of New Mexico. For the next 25 years, Adams taught at the university, and in 1963 he became a full professor.
