CLINTON ADAMS’ “Cabaret on Windward” was ‘drawn from life’!’ Adams frequently sought the beach walk for the cool breezes, pacific landscape of the ocean and the atmosphere of SoCal. Contributing to that atmosphere was Windward Avenue, lined with buildings dating from the beginning of the century. “Cabaret on Windward”, depicted by Adams in 1950 and still structurally there in 2016(!), was an expression of that atmosphere.
