This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known primarily for his stained glass work, David Armstrong was also a painter whose main studio was in New York City.  He trained as a lawyer, and in 1862 was admitted to the bar but soon changed from that career to the profession of art.

From 1869 to 1872, he was American Consulat at Rome, and in 1878 was director of the American section of the Art Department at the Paris Expo for which he received the Legion of Honor.

David Maitland Armstrong is in the following collections in Rhode Island:
Grace Episcopal Church, Providence:
1. The side window depicting St. John Inspired to Write is attributed to Armstrong (ca. 1875-1885)

Kay Chapel, Newport:
1. Window was commissioned as a memorial for LeRoy King. Designed by David Maitland Armstrong and his daughter Helen. The opalescent glass window, which depicts the Resurrection, was originally installed over the alter of Trinity Church, Newport, in 1895.

St. Columba's, The Berkeley Memorial Chapel, Middletown:
1. This is a beautiful small stone chapel, reminiscent of an English village church, designed by Philadelphia architect Wilson Eyre, in 1885.. Armstrong designed the eight aisle windows, the small choir window and the large triple lancet chancel window (ca. 1886-1887). It's likely the windows were made in the Tiffany Studios where Armstrong worked as a designer up until 1882. In the 1890's he opened his own glass studio in Washington Sq., N.Y.
