    Art Brokerage: Ralph Love American Artist: b. 1907-1992. Ralph Love was a lifetime member of the Society of Western Artists (SWA), judged and participated in many of their shows. One of the most notable was at the De Young Museum in San Francisco, where his "Eternal Strength" seascape won the first purchase award. He was also a lifetime member of the Laguna Beach Art Association, having judged regularly at the Laguna Festival of Arts. Ralph Love was perhaps most well known for painting the Grand Canyon. Arizona Life featured his work on the cover and on the inside spread, showing several of his original oils. Senator Barry Goldwater owned several of Love's Grand Canyons, and these are now in the Goldwater Museum. Other celebrities have purchased his oils, as well as museums in Oklahoma, Colorado, Arizona and California. His desert scenes are immortalized in Palm Springs at the Palm Desert Living Desert Museum through dioramas. Another of these unique displays can be seen at the historical Mission Inn in Riverside, California. Ralph Love paintings are hanging in several other museums throughout the West, including the Northern Arizona Museum in Flagstaff, Arizona, the Phillips 66 Museum, and the Leanin' Tree Museum in Boulder, Colorado. Ralph Love is listed in "Who's Who of International Art" in the Tenth Anniversary edition of the "Southwest Art Magazine" hardcover contemporary artist listings, and has been featured several times in Southwest Art and Artist of the Rockies, and was featured in 1991 in Art of the West, the last article before he died. He is listed in the Edan Hughes reference book of Early California Painters from 1840 to 1940. Ralph Love received no formal art training, but was literally self-taught. It was when he was about eleven or twelve, his teacher took the class the Los Angeles Museum of Art, and he discovered what he wanted to do. He remembered standing in front of one of the old Flemish masters, and it just came to him . . . "I can do that!" And he did.
