Best known as one of the wildlife designers for the Hagen-Renaker Pottery Company of California, Maureen Love began her professional career as an artist by painting beautiful portraits of Thoroughbred and Arabian horses for their owners. She quickly moved into the realm of sculpture, creating realistic models that captured the spirit and beauty of her subjects. Her ability to draw earned her a position in 1951 with Hagen-Renaker as a decorator. She promptly proved her proficiency at three-dimensional art and soon began sculpting for the pottery. What followed were five decades of life-like equine, wildlife, and other assorted creations, all eagerly coveted by collectors around the world. This book features hundreds of photographs of the horses and other animals created by Maureen Love, both through her own independent companies and through the Hagen-Renaker Pottery. Many pieces are very difficult to find, so this collection is truly a treasure of visual delights. A detailed personal history, index, and price guide are also included in this wonderful tribute to a multi-talented artist.
