Born in San Francisco, Gordon Grant is known for his etchings and paintings of marine subjects. Grant sailed around Cape Horn to England at the age of twelve, where, at his father's wish, he attended the Fife Academy in Scotland. Later he spent three years of additional study at the Heatherley Art School in London.

Returning to America in 1896, he became a well known illustrator for many of the leading periodicals of the period. Shortly after World War I he became a full time marine artist, painting in both oil and watercolors. He concentrated on historic sail subjects and exhibited widely in America and at the Paris Salon. He also wrote and illustrated a number of books on the sea.

Grant was one of the best known and most successful practitioners of marine art of his day. . Memberships included the Society of Illustrators, American Watercolor Society, Salmagundi Club, Allied Artists of America, New York Society of Painters, and American Federation of Artists. Today his paintings grace many of the most important marine art collections in the country.
