"Haymaking on the Thames" by John Clayton Adams
John Clayton Adams or J. Clayton Adams (1840– 20 January 1906) was a well-known landscape artist from Edmonton, Londonmarker.

Adams studied at the Bloomsbury Art School and lived in Edmonton, North Londonmarker until 1873 when he moved to Ewhurst Hillmarker, near Guildfordmarker. Most of his landscapes depict scenes from counties in Southern England, particularly Surreymarker. However, he also painted a few Scottish works featuring the River Tweed.

"Harvesting" was a favourite subject throughout his life and many of his exhibits at the Royal Academymarker explore this theme. Adams' landscapes are characterised by his broad technique, use of rich colour and sensitive handling of light. Throughout the period 1863 to 1893, Adams exhibited 75 pictures at the Royal Academy and 25 pictures at the Royal Society of British Artists.

Following the example of Benjamin Williams Leader, George Cole and his son Vicat Cole, he produced pleasantly naturalistic landscapes, truthful in detail but in general idealized.

Some of his paintings are labeled Clayton Adams and most are signed J. Clayton Adams.
