Reynold Weidenaar (AM 1915-1985) – Midnight Winds – Mezzotint, 1935, signed, titled and annotated “no. 9” in pencil, edition of 71, 10 ¾ x 15. This piece is in excellent condition.

Reynold Weidenaar was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 11/17/1915, and died there on 4/23/1985. He lived most of his life in west Michigan, with brief residencies away in Wisconsin, Kansas City, Missouri and in old Mexico (on a Guggenheim fellowship). Weidenaar enrolled at the Kansas City Art Institute and began printmaking in 1939. From a need to work to support himself, Weidenaar had a day job and made prints on the school's press at night. He seldom was able to attend classes, but the greater benefit afforded by the school was access to a press. He produced a significant small percentage of his total life's work during that one year in Kansas City. He won national awards while still a first year student there.
