An oil on canvas board by Paul Grimm (American 1891-1974). A prolific artist over a long period of time, Grimm was born in King Willamstown, South Africa and studied at the Düsseldorf Royal Academy in Germany. Throughout the 1920's Grimm lived in Hollywood and painted movie backdrops. He then moved to Palm Springs in 1932 where he lived the rest of his life. He had a studio at 428 N. Palm Canyon Road where Pesident Dwight Eisenhower visited and befriended him. Although he was known to paint Indian portraits, missions, and the High Sierra mountains, his fame is rooted in the desert scenes and Mt. San Jacinto to which one critic wrote "His canvases of Mt. San Jacinto, which for their sheer magnificence and power of conception and execution, rank as probably the finest work ever done on the subject". Grimm is represented at the Nevada Museum in Reno and other institutions. This painting is in excellent original condition, signed in the lower left and signed, titled and dated 1971 on the reverse. The painting is in a contemporary custom frame. Measures 18" x 24"(unframed), and 24" x 30" (framed).
