HITHERTO the youth's artistic studies had consisted almost entirely of copying, and that chiefly from Morland; although he had about his twelfth year (1804) begun to draw from the cast, as we have seen. He was now to launch out into a broader path, and to get fairly on the way to an artistic career. About this time (most probably in 1804) he made the acquaintance of three or four men who had in their several ways a special influence upon his future. Happening one day to be lingering with his sketchbook in Christie's saleroom, in King Street, St. James's, he was attracted by a picture of Girtin's [ corollaire ], and was furtively making a note of it, when he was seen by William Fleetwood Varley, the youngest brother of John Varley, the famous watercolour painter, and himself a fair artist in that medium.

Struck by the boy's intelligent look and by his diligence,
William Varley got into conversation with him
[ corollaire ], and ended by asking him to go and see his brother,
who was the best known teacher of the time.

"When I turned my boat in Vietnam into an ambush . . . I didn't see George Bush or Dick Cheney at my side,” Mr Kerry said in an interview on CBS television.

“I'm not going to take a second seat to anybody in my willingness to be tough to defend the United States of America.”

Horrifying experience

Drawn by gunfire, Mr. Adams and an NBC film crew watched South Vietnamese soldiers bring a handcuffed Viet Cong captive to a street corner, where they assumed he would be interrogated. Instead, South Vietnam's police chief, Lt. Col. Nguyen Ngoc Loan, strode up, wordlessly drew a pistol and shot the man in the head.

Mr. Adams caught the instant of death in a photo that made front pages around the world. It would became one of the Vietnam War's most indelible images, shocking the American public and used by critics to belie official claims that the war was being won.

In later years, Mr. Adams found himself so defined -- and haunted -- by the picture that he would not display it at his studio. He also felt it unfairly maligned Loan, who lived in Virginia after the war and died in 1989.

''The guy was a hero,'' Mr. Adams said, recalling Loan's explanation that the man he executed was a Viet Cong captain, responsible for murdering the family of Loan's closest aide a few hours earlier.

''Sometimes a picture can be misleading because it does not tell the whole story,'' Mr. Adams said in an interview for a 1972 AP photo book. ''I don't say what he did was right, but he was fighting a war and he was up against some pretty bad people.''
