Biography from Charleston Renaissance Gallery:

Prentiss Taylor, printmaker, painter, and art therapist, was born in Washington D.C. in 1907. He studied at the Corcoran Gallery Art School and the Art Students League of New York. In 1931 he collaborated with author Langston Hughes in creating Golden Stair Press, printing and publishing broadsides and books.

Taylor visited Charleston, South Carolina, from the end of May 1933 to Labor Day of that year, and when back in New York he created a number of lithographs based on his sketches and experiences in the South. Again he visited Charleston, arriving in February 1934 and staying for a short while, this time employed on the Public Works of Art Project in New York. Other visits to Charleston occurred in 1946 and several times thereafter.

Taylor received fellowships at the MacDowell Colony and Yaddo. From 1942 to 1976 he was the president of the Society of Washington Printmakers. Taylor practiced art therapy from 1943 to 1954 at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington D.C. and he also wrote Art as Psychotherapy, published in the American Journal of Psychiatry in February 1950.

His work can be seen in many collections including the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C., the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, among numerous others. His honors include the Cannon Graphic Prize from the National Academy of Design in 1954 and the Pennell Purchase award, 3rd prize class, from the Library of Congress in 1943. Taylor died in 1991 in Washington, D.C.
