Painter, etcher, lithographer, and illustrator Grant Reynard was born in Grand Island, Nebraska, and originally trained as a pianist, which he abandoned in favor of the visual arts, studying at the Art Institute of Chicago, 1906-07. In 1913 he became Art Director of Redbook and contributed illustrations to it, as well as to The Saturday Evening Post, Harper's Bazaar, Collier's, and Cosmopolitan. Reynard pursued advanced training with Charles Chapman, Harvey Dunn, Mahonri Young, and Harry Wickey at Leonia, New Jersey during this period, and maintained a studio there for many years. From 1926 through 1937, he was a fellow of the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire. Reynard was elected an Associate of the National Academy and taught at several different schools. He was the president of the Montclair Art Museum and the American Watercolor Society.
