This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, courtesy of John Underwood, is from descriptive text of an exhibition July 26 to August 30, 2002 in the Beverly and Sam Ross Gallery of Christian Brothers University of Memphis, Tennessee.

"Jack Grue was born in Kiev, Russia. He studied in the Ukraine and served with the anti-Bolshevik White Army. Grue left Russia at the end of the Russian civil war and settled in Vienna. He continued his studies there at the Academy of Fine Arts and reached success as scenic director for theatrical producer Max Reinhardt. Grue left Europe in 1939, when the Nazis took power in Austria, and resettled in Memphis.

His paintings were widely ehibited during his lifetime in both the United States and abroad. He was one of only three Americans to be accepted into the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers in London; he also belonged to miniaturist societies in Washington, D.C., and in Pennsylvania.

Grue's artwork ranged in medium from oil to tempera, from woodcuts to watercolors. His subjects ranged from Biblical illustrations to Mississippi river scenes, from Rocky Mountain landscapes to French Quarter street scenes. In contrast to the intimacy of his miniatures, Grue also worked as a muralist and, locally, produced a number of large paintings for the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. He also designed stained glass windows for the former site of Baron Hirsch Synagogue in the Vollintine-Evergreen area. "
