Historical Context:
Weidenaar was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan and went on to study at the Kansas City Art Institute in the 1940s. He was one of earliest people in the United States to rediscover and revive the art of mezzotint printmaking and spent considerable time experimenting not only with techniques, but also in designing and hand-making the tools he used to create his prints. This painting on panel with its curved shape points to the possibility that this work could have been originally commissioned for a particular space.
