This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Poland, Adam Styka studied art at the French Academy of Fine Arts, Academie de Beau Arts, and with his artist father, Jan Styka (1858-1925). Among exhibition venues for Adam Styka are the Salon de Paris and Champs Des Elysses.

He graduated from the French Military Academy in Fontainebleau, and then served in the French artillery during the World War I, earning a Cross of Merit and the French "Nationality Citizenship" and a special assistance from the French Government to visit French colonies in Northern Africa.

From these annual journeys, Adam Styka developed a special interest in Middle-Eastern and Oriental themes and devoted his art career to these subjects. He also does paintings of the American Wild West. The last year of his life, 1959, he worked on religious paintings, "The Assumption of Virgin Mary" and "The Ascension of Jesus".

Adam Styka died on 23rd of September 1959 and is buried in the Alley of the Merit in the cemetery if the "New Czestochowa" of the Pauline Fathers in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
