Born in Nördlingen, he began an apprenticeship as a confectioner and went in 1803 to Nuremberg to begin his training However, influenced by the director of the Academy of Fine Arts of Nuremberg and later by Johann Rugendas, he turned towards painting – mainly battlefields and horses1
After participating in the Austrian campaign of 1809, he stayed for a time in Vienna,2 where he drew the attention of Napoleon's stepson Eugène de Beauharnais and was appointed his court painter1
Most of Adam's subsequent works deal with Napoleon's Russian campaign, during which he was attached to the Bavarian contingent as a war artist3 In addition to his title as court painter, he was given an officer's rank2 Among other works, he painted a diary of the campaign in 83 scenes1
In 1815, Adam moved to Munich, where he was occupied by the emperors and kings of Austria and Bavaria1 His studio in Munich was frequently visited by Theodor Horschelt, who later became well known for his paintings of the Russian Caucasian War
