Don't know if Mr. Weidenaar ever visited California, but he did exhibit some beautiful watercolors in the Society of Western Artists exhibitions in San Francisco during the 1950s-60s era. Not sure why the biography doesn't mention much about his watercolors, but the ones I have seen are extremely well done.

Questions on Weidenaar and his work
I am Reynold Weidenaar's daughter, and represent the estate. I would welcome any inquiries about his work.

Kim Smith

Weidenaar's life and work
I first met Reynold Weidenaar in 1976 and am very familiar with his prints, watercolors & oils. I would be happy to share this information & can be reached at


Eyes of the City
I lost the info I had about the museum I visited in Grand Rapids. I wanted to come back up there and meet his daughter and see more of his work. I am planning another trip up there and would bring my piece with me. Anyone know who I could call? Thanx, janeq


Weidenaar Watercolors Signatures
For a brief time in the early 1940s Weidenaar signed with "Weidener," the German equivalent of his name. However, he soon returned to his Dutch birth name and did not then depart from it thereafter.

The German invasion of The Netherlands in 1940 perhaps led to his decision to drop the recently adopted German alias.

Reynold Weidenaar Watercolors
I have four signed landscape watercolors ("Untitled Landscape", undated. (Grand Rapids Art Museum identified them by R.H. Weidenaar. However, they are signed Reynold Weidener. I understand that Weidener was his birthname, later changed to Weidenaar. Can anyone confirm this fact or provide any information on these very early works?

Patrick Ford

Nude portrait
We have found what appears to be a signed nude portrait by Reynold Weidenaar with a seal in the bottom left hand corner. Can any one help us find out more about it?

Eyes of the City
I have a Weidenaar piece that my hubby found in a RR co office in Chicago. It is 'Eyes of the City' of Grand Rapids. I now know, since talking to Reynold's daughter that he put his wife and children in the picture and lots of other people, street signs, billboards, great detail.However, mine has no run number on it. It is signed and dated. It looks like it is an original pencil sketch. Mr Weidenaar gave it as a gift to the man who owned the company my hubby worked for. Why does mine not have a run number?

Ken Tennis

Reynold's mother
I rented an upstairs apartment from Reynold Weidenaars mother way back in the very early 1960's. The walls of that home have to be worth a fortune. Practically every wall had paintings on them with frames, but it was all plaster and paint. The bathroom had a 360 degree painting of a desert scene (as I recall). Never met the man.


Reynold Weidenaar
I have two Weidenaar pencil sketches from the late 1930's and some photos of the artist at work. Does anyone have any info on these?

Reply to C.G.C. inquiry

Pacific Ocean Oils
Reynold Weidenaar never worked on the west coast. From seeing two of these ocean oils, I agree they are stylistically dissimilar to the art of Reynold Weidenaar. They are not by this artist.

C. G. Cristo

Weidenaar Oil Canvas
I purchased two Pacific Ocean seascape oil paintings that are signed Weidenaar and R. Weidenaar. I heard that a number of eastern artists came to California to paint the surf because of the glorious colors. Does anyone know if Reynold Weidenaar would have painted these seascapes as it does not look like Weidenaar's more celebrated works.

Weidenaar inquiry "1950s" from judy.
You can see Reed's Lake Weidenaar drawings from the 1950s by contacting Paula Weidenaar Graf in Grand Rapids at 616/459-6946.


As a young girl in Grand Rapids, Mich. I spent hours looking over the shoulders of Mr. Weidenaar as he sketched myself and friends swimming at a boat landing on Reed's Lake. I am very interested in knowing if any of the sketches are available.


Reynold Weidenaar
