Wayman Adams is known for portraits of prominent persons including authors, painters, political leaders, etc.  His portrait of Booth Tarkington brought him early recognition, and he was known as a "lightning" artist because his portraits were completed in one sitting.  Ethnic types constitute one of the most intriguing aspects of his work.
