Although born in London, Stanley Grimm was whisked back to Russia by his family to be educated first at Riga and then Munich. In 1911 he attended the Knirr Atelier immersing himself in the Munich art world in the years immediately before the Great War and absorbing the excitement of the Blaue Reiter group of Kandinsky and Franz Marc. He eventually made his way back to London after a period being conscripted by the Bolsheviks to paint propaganda posters in Russia.
Grimm had one man shows at the Redfern Gallery in 1925, Beaux Arts in 1927, Bloomsbury Gallery in 1930 and the Wertheim Gallery in 1932. His work is held in many private and public collections, notably the Government Art Collection and the Sheffield Art Gallery’.
