Biography from Kamp Gallery, Inc.:
American Regionalist* artist Philip Gronemeyer and his wife Mary were prominent in the St. Louis, Missouri art community in the 1930s, 40s and 50s.  Philip Gronemeyer was born in St. Louis.  He studied painting at the St. Louis School of Fine Arts before moving to New York City. He taught art at the Brooklyn Boys High School while he continued his own studies at the Pratt Institute*. There he met his future wife Mary Hallet, who attended Pratt to study painting, leather tooling and woodworking. The pair discovered that they has two loves in common; painting and their noted accomplishments as violinists.

The pair returned to St. Louis in the early 1920s. Philip again took a job teaching high school art, while Mary became a fashion illustrator for a department store. The couple became key figures in the St. Louis art community beginning in the 1920s, and continuing until their deaths.

The husband and wife were active and respected members of the St. Louis Society of Independent Artists, the St. Louis Art Guild, the St. Louis Art League and the St. Louis Watercolor Club.  In addition, Philip was the founder and president of the St. Louis Conservation of Art Association. 

The Gronemeyers’ work is represented in the St. Louis Art Museum, and can be found in corporate, public, and private collections throughout St. Louis.
