John Adams Parker was born in New York City in 1829. He received his education at New York University, and was a merchant from 1850 till 1857. He went on to study art, exhibiting first at the National Academy of Design in 1858. He was made an associate of the Academy in 1869, and was a member of the Brooklyn Art Association, and one of the founders of the Brooklyn Art Club.

A distinguished nineteenth-century landscapist, Parker executed scenes of Long Island and the Adirondack, Catskill and White Mountains. Parker had a particular talent for carving out the picturesque elements of a landscape, and nineteenth-century critics lauded his work for tending “more to the suggestion of things in nature than to details.” His evocative style brought out the heightened outlines of mountain landscapes using dramatic contrasts of light and dark tones.

Parker maintained a summer studio in Keene Valley, in the Adirondacks. He died in Brooklyn, New York, in March of 1905.
