Clinton Adams

One of the pioneers of modern lithography in the United States, along with June Wayne he founded the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles catapulting the medium of lithography into the hands of numerous artists and developing fine art printers that had an  impact on modern printmaking lasting decades.

A precocious artist and a vibrant academic, his cerebral prints are a magnificent testament to his profound creative thinking, relentless persistence as an artist and a genuine understanding and love of the medium. 

Along with resourceful modern printmakers, such as, June Wayne and Francoise Gilot, he produced innovative prints that complemented his other artistic media (oils and watercolor) transitioning with ease from one to another to fulfill his creative purposes, with an eagerness and curiosity to continually experiment and learn from others.  Like Gilot and Wayne, his prints are some of the most sought after and historically important in modern lithography.
