Harry William ADAMS

1868—1947

Born in Worcester.   After eight years as a ceramics decorator at the Royal Worcester Porcelain factory, he studied at the Académie Julian, Paris. The St Ives Times  reported that he was visiting St Ives, and 'a few years ago he had a picture purchased by the Chantrey Bequest' (Aug 1913).  That painting was Winter's Sleep (RA, 1900), now owned by the Tate.  The painter was a short-term visitor to the locale.
