About the artist…
Paul Grimm (1891-1974) was a desert and mountain landscape painter whose popular Palm Springs, California, gallery attracted a dedicated following of prominent collectors.
Grimm’s art career began in 1919 when settled in Hollywood, California, where he painted backdrops for movie studios. In 1932 he settled in Palm Springs and established a studio gallery. He spent a good many summers painting in the High Sierras, and on at least one occasion ventured to northern Nevada where he painted the ghost buildings in Virginia City.
