About

"Porto del Paradiso" is in the collection of the Corcoran Museum of the National Gallery of Art, the Library of Congress, the Cleveland Museum, and New York Public Library. This image of Venice is #17 in Arms' Italian Series. Arms studied architecture at Princeton and MIT and later became the country’s finest etcher of his age. His renderings of European and American architectural subjects are not only beautiful, but they are unrivaled in their technical virtuosity and nuanced light. In a recent exhibit, the Cleveland Museum noted: Arms believed that art could be a tool for the spiritual and moral improvement of mankind and that Gothic cathedrals represented “the most significant expression of man’s aspirations.” He viewed printmaking as a vehicle for disseminating images of subjects that would uplift and inspire contemporary society. Arms served as President of the Society of American Etchers and as an ambassador for American printmakers and printmaking throughout the world.
