This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Dundee, Scotland on March 19, 1877. Adamson adopted the pseudonym Penrhyn Stanlaws. After emigrating from Scotland to the U.S. in 1901, he used his artistic talent to pay for four years at Princeton University. He then studied in Paris for three years at Académie Julian under Constant and Laurens. Returning to the U.S. in 1908, he established a studio in NYC where his illustrations of “Stanlaws’ Girls” soon became as popular as those by Gibson and Flagg in such national magazines as Saturday Evening Post and Town and Country. Highly successful, he built the Hotel des Artistes in NYC which was at that time the largest studio building in the country. In the early 1940s he relocated to Los Angeles where he worked as a dramatist and motion-picture director. A fire in his studio took his life in Los Angeles on May 18, 1957. Exh: Calif. Art Club, 1956. In: Heckscher Museum (Huntington, NY).
