Stanley Grimm (1891-1966)

Stanley Grimm was a landscape, portrait and figure painter, born in London. His father was of Baltic origin, and because his mother died shortly after his birth, he was brought up in Riga, Latvia, by his father’s family. According to tradition, his family was related to the Brothers Grimm.

He studied in Riga, but in 1911 went to Munich to study art. In 1918 he returned to Russia and was soon engaged to paint posters and decorations to celebrate the first anniversary of the October Revolution. Finally, he settled in London and from 1924 to 1940 he worked and exhibited there.

Royal Institute of Oil Painters in 1935, and to the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in 1936. He also exhibited at the Royal Academy, Alpine Club Gallery, Chenil and New Chenil Galleries, Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, Goupil Gallery, Walker Art Gallery of Liverpool, Leicester Gallery, New English Art Club, Redfern Gallery and very often at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
