Description: In this effusive two-page typed letter signed, Arms goes on at great length about the gift of prints that artist/friend, Eugene[?] has given to him. “I honestly believe your work and your friendship have been the most powerful influences for good in my life, and if I have done anything worth-while it is because of an inspiration largely derived from you.”

Arms signs “Your devoted friend, John,” signs a postscript “John,” and has made two manuscript corrections in his hand.

John Taylor Arms (1887-1953) is primarily known for his printmaking/etching prowess. He served as president of the Society of American Graphic Artists and was a member of the National Academy of Design.
