About

Jim’s of Lambertville is proud to offer this artwork by: William Francis Taylor (1883-1970) William F. Taylor was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, where he started his art career as a lithographer and illustrator. In 1905 he moved to New York and studied with John Sloan at the Art Students League. Taylor had swiftly excelled in the illustration field and was appointed art director of the New York Journal in 1908. He held this position for several years while also working as a freelance artist and illustrator for national publications such as Harpers and Century magazines. For many years, Taylor worked for the A.G. Spalding Sporting Goods Company, creating the original art for most of their advertisements. Around 1910, while visiting Phillips Mill, Taylor met fellow artist, Mary Smith Perkins, who was studying with his friend William Lathrop. A relationship developed and in 1913, they married and moved to Lumberville, Pennsylvania. In that same year, Taylor became a naturalized citizen. Living on the Delaware River, a stone’s throw away from the home of Daniel Garber, Taylor was surrounded by a wealth of subjects for his art. His paintings possess a distinct and appealing style, employing a bright fresh palette while using both a palette knife and brush to apply his paints. Painting the majority of his work within several miles of his home, Taylor also had occasion to paint on Long Island in New York, and out west in the Yosemite Valley. William F. Taylor is remembered today, not only for his fine impressionist landscape paintings, but also for his organizing and writing abilities. In October, 1928, he was appointed to head a subscription committee which would ultimately be responsible for the purchase of the Phillips Mill for use as an exhibition space and community center. In 1963, he published a history of the mill. Taylor also served as editor of the local magazine, Towpath, which was published monthly from 1939 to 1941, whose articles were primarily concerned with the environment. Additionally, he published several articles on the local artists. Taylor remained active until his death at age eighty-seven. Taylor was a member of the Salmagundi Club, the Phillips Mill Community Association (president), the New Hope Artists and Writers Association, the Delaware Valley Protective Association, and the Asbury Park Society of Fine Art. He exhibited at the Province of Ontario (1902 medal), the National Academy of Design, the Society of Independent Artists (1917), the Salmagundi Club (1924, 1927, and 1932 prizes), the Philadelphia Art Club (1924 prize), the Philadelphia Art Alliance (Purchase Prize), and the Phillips Mill.
