From the Ponte Vecchio, Florence - JOHN TAYLOR ARMS
JOHN TAYLOR ARMS
Etching, 1925, Fletcher 159 (ii/II), edition 150. 11 x 15 1/16 in. Signed and dated in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression printed on light
cream laid paper with the watermark, HAND MADE. The margins are wide and probably full. The condition is excellent. This is from his Italian Series # 1, printed by Frederick Reynolds. It's possible to document a stone bridge here back to 966 and later in 1345 there was another reconstruction after the flood of that year. The last close call for this structure was in 1966 when the Arno River burst its banks and the assault of water and silt was tremendous. So, today, this beautiful bridge continues to florish as famous landmark in historic Florence.
