The Bridge and the Storm, Mackinaw Straits - REYNOLD WEIDENAAR - mezzotint

REYNOLD WEIDENAAR
American, (1915-1985)

Mezzotint, 1957, Buckner p.119, no. 159; edition 100. 16 7/8 x 12 7/8 in. Signed in the plate, lower right. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression with full margins. The condition is fine apart from exceedingly faint toning within an early mat opening. This engineering marvel is the fourth longest suspension bridge in the world. It connects the upper and lower peninsulas of the state of Michigan. This the artist's finest print and a tour de force of mezzotint. Impressions are located in the National Gallery, the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, among many others. (A retrospective was held at the Grand Rapids Art Museum in 2015.)      SOLD
