Early 20th Century, Etching, Prints

John Taylor Arms on Beauty

We found a great quote today, by the 20th century printmaker John Taylor Arms. Arms’ two prints, Lace in Stone and The Gothic Spirit, are currently on view in our “Form, Light, Line: Architecture in Print” gallery show at the Old Print Gallery. Stop by to see these painstakingly beautiful and meticulously astounding etchings.

“To love beauty and, loving it, to seek to express it, therein appears to me the function and the duty of the artist.” -John Taylor Arms
