This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Grant "Chip" Taylor:

Cecil Vezin Grant was born in Jersey City, New Jersey on July 20, 1880. He was educated at the Pingrey School in Elizabeth, NJ and after his marriage to Mary R. Jack they relocated to Elizabeth NJ where their only child, Lois, was born in 1914.

Grant was a stockbroker, commuting to Wall Street in New York City each day. On weekends he was a "hobby painter", and traveled to the New Jersey shore, Gloucester, MA, and in the mid 1920s to southern Vermont. In the late 1920s he purchased an old farmhouse between Londonderry and Peru on Route 11.

The farmhouse was intended to be summer vacation home, but the Wall
Street crash of October 1929 changed all that: Cecil Grant lost his job, his life savings and even his home in Elizabeth, NJ. He moved his family to the Vermont farmhouse, struggled to make ends meet with odd jobs, and
continued his painting just to keep occupied.

But in the depths of the Great Depression, Grant began to win prizes for some of his paintings exhibited locally. From then until his death in March 1953 he painted over a thousand oil landscapes of Vermont, virtually all of scenes
within a 30 mile radius of his Londonderry home. He painted year around,
and in the summers he had what amounted to a one-man show on the village
green in Manchester VT, next to Walter Hard's drugstore and directly
across from the Equinox Hotel.

In later years he also operated the Manchester Art Gallery in what is now the Brewster Funeral Home in Manchester Center.

Examples of Cecil Grant's work are in the following museum collections:
The Fleming Museum, University of Vermont, Burlington VT
The Bennington Museum, Bennington VT
Middlebury College
Baker Library, Dartmouth College
Newark Museum
Vanderbilt University
In addition, a large mural-sized painting of Bromley Mountain is
on permanent display in the Peru Congregational Church, Peru, Vermont.
