John Clayton Adams studied at the Bloomsbury Art School and lived in Edmonton, North London until 1873 when he moved to Ewhurst Hill, near Guildford.

Most of his landscapes depict scenes from the southern counties, particularly Surrey. However, he also painted a few Scottish works featuring the River Tweed. ‘Harvesting’ was a favourite subject throughout his life and many of his exhibits at the Royal Academy explore this theme.

Adams’ landscapes are characterised by his broad technique, use of rich colour and sensitive handling of light. Throughout the period 1863 to 1893, Adams exhibited 75 pictures at the Royal Academy and 25 pictures at the Royal Society of British Artists.
