Stanley Grimm was born in London in 1891. His artistic training began at the Riga Arts School in 1910. On completing his training, Grimm travelled to Munich to continue his studies for a further year before the onset of the First World War halted his artistic pursuits.
Following the war, Grimm returned to his native London where he garnered acclaim due to his participation in numerous national exhibitions, such as those with the Royal Academy, the Redfern Gallery and the Goupil Gallery. He was an enthusiastic member of the Chelsea Arts Club. Grimm’s work remains represented in a number of public art galleries.
