Biography: Born in Kiev, Jack Grue studied in Ukraine and served with the anti-Bolshevik White Army. He left Russia at the end of the Russian civil war and moved to Vienna where he continued his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts. When the Nazis took power in Austria, Grue moved to the U.S. and settled in Memphis, TN. Grue's paintings were widely exhibited during his lifetime in both the U.S. and internationally he was one of only three Americans to be accepted into the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers in London. He also belonged to miniaturist societies in Washington, D.C., and in Pennsylvania. Grue is best known for his miniatures, landscapes, and murals.
