Helen Grunwald was a Jewish artist who was born in Vienna in 1925 and died in 1988. According to the Association of Jewish Refugees Information magazine from December 1986, she fled Austria with her mother in 1939, following the Nazi ‘invasion’. It appears she never married, as she is constantly referred to as Miss Grunwald. In England, she studied under Henry Carr at the Beckenham School of Art from 1941-44, and then under Carel Weight at the Royal College of Art from 1949-52, thus gaining the ‘A.R.C.A’ post-nominal letters. 
St Thomas Grunwald Looking at what has been sold at auction in the past, she seemed to focus on atmospheric scenes of London and some surrounding towns from the 1950s–70s, many populated by rather earnest people going about their business. Music and architecture are recurring themes. She had talent – at least I think she did. A few portraits have also passed through the salerooms, but mainly in large groups at low values. Some are signed ‘Helen’ or ‘Hel’, but many are unsigned. She seemed to have enjoyed some success in her lifetime and exhibited at a number of prestigious galleries including the Leger, the Leicester and the Berkeley. She also produced murals of the Canterbury saints at the church of St Thomas in Canterbury (shown above right).
