<As an art dealer, he represented the newly founded Hungarian Art Association which included such artists as Agoston Trefort, Miklós Jósika, József Eötvos, László Serenyi, Miklós Jósika and László Szalay. This association was founded in 1839, the same year that Grimm and Szen founded the Budapest Chess Club of which Grimm became honorary president. In 1842 until 1846, the chess club played the Paris team, Le Cercle des Echecs, which was lead by St. Amant and M. Chamouillet. Lionel Kieseritsky was originaly part of the Paris team, but withdrew. Other team members were Ignanz Calvi, Francois Charles Devinck (a chocolate maker. He had played Bourdonnais, Dechapelles and Morphy), Dr.H.LaRoche and Deschapelles who quit after not getting the opening he wanted. But in 1848 the Hungarian Revolution forced Grimm to flee the country. He ended up in Aleppo, a north Syrian town near the Turkish border. >
