About

1927. Etching. Fletcher 196. 7 15/16 x 8 1/4 (sheet 12 7/8 x 11 5/8). Edition 100. Italian series #12. Illustrated: Dorothy Noyes Arms, Hill Towns and Cities of Northern Italy, p. 30. A fine impression printed on 'FJ Head & Co' laid paper by Frederick Reynolds. Signed, dated and titled in pencil Housed in a 20 x 16-inch archival mat suitable for framing. John Taylor Arms (1887–1953) is one of the foremost American printmakers of the first half of the 20th century. Trained as an architect, he spent the majority of his 50-year career documenting Europe’s great Gothic churches. Arms believed that art could be a tool for the spiritual and moral improvement of mankind and that Gothic cathedrals represented “the most significant expression of man’s aspirations.” He viewed printmaking as a vehicle for disseminating images of subjects that would uplift and inspire contemporary society.
