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.
