This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Sibley, IA on Oct. 6, 1886. After studying at the AIC, Grant traveled to Venice, Italy in 1907 to enroll in one of Wm M. Chase’s summer classes. While there, Chase awarded Grant the annual prize for best summer student.

On that trip he also studied in Paris and became more familiar with the work of Monet and Cézanne. Returning to Chicago, he became a popular and respected member of the local art community. In 1914 he traveled to California to again participate in Chase’s summer class in Carmel. A brilliant colorist, Chase's influence is seen in his work.

In 1947 Grant moved to Oakland, CA where he remained until his demise on Feb. 4, 1959.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Sibley, Iowa, Frederick Grant settled in Chicago where he was an oil and watercolor landscape and still-life painter. Many of his finest scenes were of the Lake Michigan area.

He studied with John Vanderpoel at The Art Institute of Chicago and then went to Paris and Venice where he was a student of William Merritt Chase. He adopted Chase's broad, painterly technique in his work which inclined towards romantic subject matter.

He exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Chicago Art Club and the Palm Beach Art Center.
