Marine painter. Born in Oswego, NY on Feb. 6, 1866. Artistically
inclined at an early age, Grant painted his first seascape when he was
eight. His art training began at the National Academy of Design
in his early teens and continued in the studios of Seymour J. Guy and
M. F. H. DeHaas.
The desire to paint the Pacific Ocean brought him to California in

for the rest of his life. An ardent sailor, he was familiar with
almost all ocean-going craft, and by 1925 his reputation as a ship and
marine painter was such that he was made the official artist of the
U.S. Navy on its visit to Australia.
