Photographic portrait of the Taos painter Kenneth Adams and his wife Hilda Adams in their home. They are seated on a sofa or bed and an Indian rug and candle holder are on the wall behind them.
Kenneth Miller Adams studied with G.M. Stone in Topeka, at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Students League in New York, and then travelled to Italy and France for further instruction. He summered in Woodstock, NY with Andrew Dasburg, painting the landscape and developing his skills as a modernist. In 1924 Adams moved to Taos and became the last and youngest member of the Taos Society of Artists. He was also one of the most emotionally taught at the University of New Mexico, Taos. In 1938 He moved to Albuquerque during the winters, where he worked on nudes, portraits and still life, returning to Taos in the summer to focus on Indian subjects, with whom he had a close connection. He taught at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, as well, eventually earning a tenured professorship and a membership to the National Academy of Design.
