I cannot resist celebrating an artist who devoted his life to animal paintings. The love for animals and the respect Adam shows in his work is apparent and though there isn’t much historical relevance to his work it’s nice to see someone who loved animals so much that he memorialized them in paint.

Benno Raffael Adam (July 15, 1812, Munich – March 9, 1892, Kehlheim) was a German painter.

He specialised in animal portraits and market and hunting scenes. He was the son of painter Albrecht Adam and the father of painter Emil Adam.
