Grell’s large theatre mural designs combined are unquestionably his Magnum Opus. Commissioned primarily throughout the 1920’s and 1930’s where many are over one hundred feet in length.
Grell imagineered countless scenes. This is to say something entirely unique in setting, location, time and character. The many landscape scenes existed only in Grell’s imagination until he put oil on brush and applied it to canvas. Many are based on folklore or Greek mythology and history, but its the select many pictures that absolutely only resided in his imagination that stand out.
