Virginia Love was a girl who lived in St.Louis, MO. in the 1940's. Most of her work was done in watercolor. Some was cutout paper collage, and some pen and ink sketches. Her work reflects her time (wartime rationing, period advertising), her surroundings (watercolor landscapes and still lifes), and her studies (Latin, geometry).
