Kenneth Miller Adams
Purple Iris, 1966
Known for its clarity and unadorned realism, the work of American painter Kenneth Miller Adams (1897–1966) manifested in oil and watercolor, mural and lithograph. After an education that took him from Chicago to New York, then to Europe and back to New York, Adams settled down in New Mexico in 1924, remaining for a thirty-year tenure with the University of New Mexico. Adams’s public art commissions from the New Deal Works Progress Administration Federal Art Project can be found throughout New Mexico, as well as in Kansas and Washington, DC.
