Born in Zürich, Switzerland on Nov. 7, 1899. Rederer was a self-taught artist and a world traveler. During the 1930s he was professor of art at the university in Caracas, Venezuela. With the advent of WWII, he appears to have moved to the San Francisco Bay area into a studio home in Berkeley. He was active in the local art scene into the 1950s.
