Frederic Milton Grant

1886 - 1959

Frederic Milton Grant was a painter, illustrator, etcher and teacher. He was born in Sibley, Iowa on October 6, 1886. He attended the North Dakota State University in Fargo for four years, and then headed east to attend the Art Institute of Chicago. He studied under John H. Vanderpool, Walter Marshall Clute, Louis Wilson, Frederick Oswald, Frederick W. Freer and Alphonse Mucha. In 1913 Grant attended the world renowned Académie Colarossi in Paris, then shortly after went to Venice where he painted under famed American Impressionist William Merritt Chase. Though Grant traveled quite a bit, he made his home in Chicago from 1907 - 1948. He worked as a teacher at the Chicago Academy of Fine Art, as well as working as a commercial artist. Grant has executed public murals in Chicago, Evanston, Highland Park and Great Lakes. He was a member of the Chicago Painters and Sculptors, and the Cliff Dwellers, also in Chicago. Grant has had his work exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Corcoran Gallery, the Chicago Arts Guild, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, the Rhode Island School of Design, the Chicago Arts Cub, the Palm Beach Art Club and the Minneapolis Institute of Fine Art. Grant's work is currently represented in the State Museum in Springfield, Illinois, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Frederic Grant enjoyed a solid reputation as an artist in Chicago. Eleanor Jewett, an art critic for the Chicago Tribune wrote, "There is no more brilliant decorative painter living today than Frederic M. Grant." Twenty years later, she wrote, "His work is infamous for its magnificent color and fine design. He is probably the greatest colorist Chicago has ever known." In 1948 Grant moved to Oakland California where he stayed until his death in 1959.
