Shadows of Venice - JOHN TAYLOR ARMS
Medium: etching with aquatint
JOHN TAYLOR ARMS
Etching with aquatint, 1930, Fletcher 229 ( ii/II), edition 100 (140?) 10 1/8 x 12 in. Signed and dated in pencil, lower right, and numbered in pencil "Edition 100," lower left. This is a superb, luminous impression printed on an old sheet of greenish laid paper, probably an end leaf from a book or ledger. The margins are full and the condition is fine. This very desirable print depicts the Ponte di Rialto, a favorite subject of etchers in modern times.
(Note: the catalogue lists a printing of 127 impressions in 1930 and then an additional 13 proofs between 1930 and 1938.)
