Boris Grinsson (1907, Pskov, Russia – 1999) was an artist famous for drawing the designs for over 2000 French film posters.[1]


Fleeing Russia after the Bolshevik take over, Grinsson's family settled in Estonia with Boris studying art in Tartu. Moving to Berlin to use his skills, he found work at the UFA Studio designing film posters. His drawing of an anti-Hitler election poster in 1932 led him to flee Germany to Paris after Hitler took power.[2]
