On 10/08/2013 at an auction in London, UK I purchased two small oil paintings attributed to "Bernard Adams."
They were a rural scene of “Willow Cottage, Twyford, Berks” When I re-framed the two paintings I discovered a note that states:
“Willow Cottage, Twyford, Berks
Painted for J.M. Addison by Bernard Adams – 1936”
I hope you can point me to any information regarding Bernard Adams. I tried to google him but I’m not certain that the information I found on a British artist with the same name is “my” Bernard Adams.
