This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Painter and Sculptor Eleanor Hilowitz (aka "Helani") was born in 1913  in New York City. Pursuing her first career choice, she earned a Masters degree in Psychotherapy from Columbia University in 1938.  In 1941 she joined the Art Students League where she studied until 1947 with Bernard Gussow (1881-1957); Yasuo Kuniyoshi (1893-1953); and, Hans Hofmann (1880-1966), whose influence was the strongest on Hilowitz.

In her early work, there is formidable evidence of her robust abilities as a figure/portrait painter, however, she quickly embraced abstract art as her artistic path.

In 1952, she moved to Rome, Italy, where she created a successful business, which gave her the freedom to paint continuously over the course of the next 29 years.  After painting and exhibiting for 3 decades in Italy, Hilowitz returned to Manhattan in 1981, where she continued to paint and exhibit into the mid-1990s.

Eleanor Hilowitz passed away in September 2007.
