- Helen Biggar – Filmmaker ExtraordinaryDear Ms Shepherd. I am Eli Montlake's first cousin. Our fathers were brothers but i lost touch with him after about 1950. Eli was about 12 years older than I was and thus led a grown up life while I was still a little girl. My father let him live with us when he first came to London as a very young man but we were more conventional than Eli liked so he did not spend much time with us. He pointed wonderful portraits of all of us during WWII.This was my father's way of helping him out financially. I also have one or two other paintings by him as well as one piece of his sculpture.in addition I have paintings by some of his Glasgow friends.i have a photo of his self portrait at a gallery opening with 4 "groupies" displaying considerable adulation. I could scan this and send it to you. You might know who they all were. I never met Helen Biggar nor the woman he married much later in life who took him to Ibiza. Do you know any more about him, such as when and where he died? Is the on line piece by Xaviera Hollander, the "Happy Hooker", about her nursing him in his old age true? Is seems extremely unlikely but I have no way of knowing. Our family has had painters, writers and musicians in different generations so he was right there in the middle. all best wishes Judith M Taylor San Francisco Web site: www.horthistoria.com PS One of my grandsons is named Cosmso
