Le Penseur de Notre Dame - JOHN TAYLOR ARMS
JOHN TAYLOR ARMS
Etching, 1923, Fletcher 136 (i/II), edition 150. 12 1/2 x 10 in. Signed and dated in pencil. This is a superb impression printed on a light cream laid paper. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. This iconic image epitomizes Arms' fascination with medieval architecture and it's a remarkable tribute to it. The plate was rebitten in 1937 and that constitutes Fletcher's description of the second state. Thirty-five impressions were then printed in addition to the one hundred and fifty from 1923.
