Philip and Mary Gronemeyer

Philip and Mary Gronemeyer

American Regionalist artists Philip Gronemeyer and his wife Mary were prominent in the St. Louis, Missouri art community in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Philip Gronemeyer was born in St. Louis. He studied painting at the St. Louis School of Fine Arts before moving to New York City. He taught art at the Brooklyn Boys High School while he continued his own studies at the Pratt Institute. There he met his future wife Mary Hallet, who attended Pratt to study painting, leather tooling and woodworking. The pair discovered that they had two loves in common - their love of painting and their noted accomplishments as violinists. The couple spent the rest of their lives together creating dazzling art and making beautiful music. The pair returned to St. Louis in the early 1920s. Philip again took a job teaching high school art, while Mary became a fashion illustrator for a department store. The couple became key figures in the St. Louis art community beginning in the 1920s, and continuing until their deaths. They were active and respected members of the St. Louis Society of Independent Artists, the St. Louis Art Guild, the St. Louis Art League and the St. Louis Watercolor Club. In addition, Philip was the founder and president of the St. Louis Conservation of Art Association. Their work was influenced by Post-Impressionism, Expressionism, Futurism and Folk Art. They are both regarded as exceptional St. Louis Modernist painters. The Gronemeyers' work is represented in the St. Louis Art Museum as well as corporate, public, and private collections in St. Louis.
