Adolphus Knell is believed to be one of the sons of the 19th Century marine painter William Adolphus Knell. Adolphus was first listed as a painter in Bath then later moved to Bristol, England. A number of excellent marine paintings bearing his signature have survived and today are considered quite collectable. Over time he progressed to a more widely flowing brushstroke than the other members of his family.
