Historical Context:
"Home From the Forest" rewards very close observation. The intaglio print, which combines several different printing methods (etching, engraving, mezzotint), depicts a lively woodland scene with great dynamism and depth. Master printmaker, author, and Michigan native, Weidenaar attended the Kansas City Art Institute just before World War II. Once established, he served on exhibition juries and showed his own work at venues around the United States, including the National Academy of Design, the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the Corcoran Gallery, Washington DC. He received several awards, notably the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship for his work in etching, lithography, and drawing.
