Art Brokerage: Harry Curieux Adamson American Artist: b.1916-2012. Born in Seattle in 1916, Harry Curieux Adamson has studied wildlife and its habitat for over half a century. While he occasionally paints other birds and mammals, the emphasis has always been on waterfowl. Whether it be rippling skeins of snow geese against a blue sky or pink-eared ducks in Australia's heartland, the artist' s fascination with these birds has never left him, as attested by the fact that he has observed one hundred sixteen species of ducks and geese in the wild. Adamson studied under Paul J. Fair, a nationally recognized sculptor and wildlife photographer. A period of book illustration at the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology in Berkeley, California also contributed to his early training. After serving our country for more than four years in World War II, the artist began his pursuit of a full-time career in portraying wildfowl in oil. Gradually his work found wider acceptance and in 1952 a pintailnpainting was purchased by the then President of Mexico, Miguel Aleman Valdez. Adamson is described by internationally famous wildlife artist David Maass as unsurpassed when it comes to portrayals of wildfowl on the wing in their natural surroundings. Wildlife artist Owen Gromme says Adamson is simply one of the finest waterfowl artists in the world. Listings wanted.
