Arms is considered one of America’s greatest printmakers. He was born in Washington, D.C. (1887) and later studied under Ross Turner and D.A. Gregg. He was chevalier of the Legion of Honor and a member of the National Academy of Design. His work is in many major museums, including the Library of Congress, Princeton University, the Fogg, the Metropolitan, the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert and Yale University. The Print Club of Albany’s John Taylor Arms Prize is awarded in honor of this “patron saint” of the Club. Arms died in 1953.
