Alexis Grimou was an 18th century French portrait painter. Grimou’s style was similar to that of 17th century Dutch painters such as Rembrandt, and he was never made a member of the Academie Royale de Peinture. He was a student of François de Troy and his use of color and composition influenced later portraitists such as Ducreux and Greuze.
