Return to "Elleneen"

Illustration for "Elleneen"

The illustrator is G. A. Cowles. Genevieve Almeda Cowles (1871 - after 1929) was born in Farmington CT, in an artistic family. Her twin sister, Maude Alice, and two other sisters, like her, made careers as artists. Genevieve studied at Yale and became a painter, illustrator, craftsman, writer, and lecturer. She produced illustrations for Scribner's and McClure's. She lectured on prisons and on Palestine. With her sister, Maude, she designed and executed the mural, "Charge to St. Peter" at the Connecticut State Prison and a series of stained glass windows for Grace Church in New York City, where she lived and worked. Genevieve and Maude produced the McClure's illustrations for "Bold Words at the Bridge," collected in The Queen's Twin.

The lovely b'y; he's twice as handsome as John ...
Oh, I thinks very often o' poor Danny.
