History Biographical
Robert Adams was born in South Wales in 1937. He first studied at the London School of Economics, after which he moved to Montreal to continue his education and teaching career at Concordia University. In 1972 he received a position at College Bois-du-Boulogne where he taught for eight more years. It was during these years he wrote his first book, “The Life and Work of Alexander Bercovitch – Artist.” In the same year of its publication, 1988, the noted biography was short listed for the Quebec Society for the Promotion of English-Language Literature (QSPELL) award in non-fiction. Robert Adams would later go on to be a recognized book reviewer, speaking regularly on CBC Radio’s “Talking Books” and TV Ontario’s “Big Ideas” on Book TV. He was also been a frequent guest-speaker at many literary functions, including those held by the Jewish Public Library in Montreal. Known as the father of modern Jewish painting in Montreal, Alexander Bercovitch was a Russian Jewish painter born in 1891 in the port city of Kherson in the Ukraine. He spent his formative years travelling across Europe honing his artistic skills and establishing himself as a painter. It wasn’t until 1926 that Bercovitch and his family came to Montreal. After a difficult first year in Montreal Bercovitch left his family and would continue to have a turbulent relationship with his wife and children. Throughout the remaining twenty-four years of his life Bercovitch would join the "Eastern Group of Painters,” work with John Lyman to establish the Canadian Arts Society of Jewish Artists and the Eastern Group as well as teach a generation of Jewish artists, including Moe Reinblatt, Ghitta Caiserman-Roth, Rita Briansky and Esther Wertheimer. On January 7, 1951 Alexander Bercovitch died from a massive heart-attack, which struck him only four hours before his retrospective was to open at the YM-YWHA.
