Unframed 1959 lithograph print 'Card Players', numbered in pencil lower left 100/100, and pencil signed lower right. The print is now in a protective sleeve with clear plastic sheet (through which a few photos were taken---allow for reflections). The sheet size is 20" by 26". The print is reverse-taped at top edge, in three places, as shown, and is NOT laid down. Condition is very clean overall; there are some black printing ink smudges apparently as issued, at right near signature and lower left. Some light toning of margins, and rear edges as shown in final image. Born in Topeka, Kansas, Adams studied at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1916. After military service in the war, he moved on to New York in 1919. At the Art Students League, Adams was a pupil of masters Kenneth Hayes Miller, George Bridgman, Maurice Stern, & Eugene Speicher. He spent summers in the Woodstock art colony with the modernist Andrew Dasburg. In the early twenties, Adams studied further in France and Italy. By 1924 he was in Taos, becoming the youngest and last member of the Taos Society of Artists in 1926. Adams died in Albuquerque. He is known today as a painter, lithographer, muralist, and teacher.
