PARKER, John Adams, artist, born in New York city, 29 November, 1829. He received his education at New York university, and was a merchant from 1850 till 1857. He then studied art, exhibiting first at the Academy of design in 1858, since which time he has been a regular contributor. He was made an associate of the academy in 1869, and is a member of the Brooklyn art association and one of the founders of the Brooklyn art club. Since 1856 he has resided in that city. Mountain scenery has especially claimed his attention, and the Adirondacks, the Catskills, and the White mountains have furnished him with most of the subjects for his paintings. They include" Twilight in the Adirondacks" (1876) ; "Winter " (1879)" "Winter Twilight " (1880): "Landscape in the Adirondacks--Twilight" (1882) ; " Winter Evening" (1884)" "The Gothics--Adirondacks" (1885)" and "Close of a November Day, Ausable Pond, Adirondacks" (1886).
