The Gothic Spirit of John Taylor Arms

decoration08 May 2011|27 Nov. 2011

John Taylor Arms (1887–1953), an American printmaker, believed in the uplifting quality of Gothic art and the power of close observation, skillfully transcribed. Not all of his prints depict Gothic subjects, but all reflect the spirit of an artist whose intense devotion to craftsmanship echoed that associated with medieval artisans. This exhibition presents selected examples from the artist's entire career, from his early New York works to his finest images of European cathedrals.
