Grace Ravlin (April 15, 1873 – September 25, 1956) was an American painter.

A native of Kaneville, Illinois,[1] Ravlin studied under John Vanderpoel at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and under William Merritt Chase at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.[2] In Paris she took lessons with Émile-René Ménard and Lucien Simon.[1] She traveled and painted widely during her time in France, visiting many places both in Europe and in North Africa.[3] She was a member of numerous organizations, including the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts, the Société des Peintres Orientalistes Français, and the Salon d'Automne. Among the awards which she received were the third medal at the Amis des Arts of Toulon in 1911; the silver medal at the Panama Pacific International Exposition in 1915; and the Field and Butler prizes at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1922.[1] Besides the Institute,[4] examples of her work may be found in the Musée du Luxembourg, the Newark Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art,[1] and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, among others.[5] Ravlin described herself as an "ethnographic painter", and her chief subject was the exotic locations to which she traveled.[2]

Ravlin died in Plano, Illinois.[6] Many of her letters have survived in private archives.[3]
