A beautiful etching by John Taylor Arms measuring 12 3/8 x 17 3/8 inches, pencil signed and dated, printed in 1945, state II, cat: Fletcher-390. John Taylor Arms was an extremely talented and successful artist in the early 20th century, known especially for his exquisite renderings of French cathedrals and other European architecture. He served as a naval officer during WWI and at the onset of WWII was ready to serve again, but did not meet the Navy's physical requirements. Instead, Arms created his "U.S. Navy Ship Series," to support the American war effort.
