John Taylor Arms | 1887-1953

John Taylor Arms was an American etcher and draftsman, who happens to be one of the most popular etchers of the 20th Century. For those who don’t know etching is the process of engraving by coating it with a protective layer, drawing on it with a needle, and then covering it with acid to attack the parts the needle has exposed in order to produce prints from. With him being a master of etching and having extremely talented architectural skills this made John Taylor Arms one of the most popular etchers of all time. Arms was most known for his etches of European churches.
