William George Reindel was an engraver, etcher and painter. He was a member of the Cleveland Society of Artists, the Chicago Society of Illustrators and the Chicago Society of Etchers. Today his original art is included in such major collections as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the New York Public Library; the Cleveland Museum of Art; the Butler Art Institute; and the British Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
During the 1920's and 1930's, William Reindel created over one hundred and fifty original etchings and engravings. Most of his prints were created in the drypoint medium. Reindel printed most of these works himself and because drypoints will yield very few impressions, his editions rarely exceeded twenty-five in number.
Most of Reindel's engravings depict either street scenes or figure studies. He visited Europe (most particularly England) on several extended trips and made a number of fine drypoints while there.
