Larkspur in the Morning Light

Despite his artistic accomplishments, Woodhull Adams‚ biography remains a bit of a mystery. He was in
Old Lyme by 1912, when he painted a picture of Florence Griswold’s parlor, and several watercolors of the
hall that was refurbished in secret by the artists as a gift to Miss Florence in 1910. In fact, his paintings
proved to be key documents that informed the analysis of furnishings and floor and wall coverings
for the 2006 renovation of the house. Adams exhibited with the Lyme Art Association from 1917 to 1922.
He became a resident of the town at some point and was living there when he died in 1921.  He is known
to have painted at Monhegan Island in Maine as part of Robert Henri’s circle there.  He exhibited once
at the National Academy of Design, in 1886, and he was a member of the prestigious Salmagundi Club
in New York, which had many well-known artist members.
