In 1919 and 1920 Arms executed a group of prints of sailboats on calm waters with mountainous backgrounds. Aquatint, an etching technique, is utilized to achieve large wash-like areas. In this beautiful and refined work, line is minimal, only delineating the sailboat while subtly graduated planes of tone suggest distance and atmosphere. Printed in color, the snow-covered peaks and shimmering waters are described with an exquisite delicacy.
