The Gilly Willies
Mildred Thompson / (Franz Berg), Hamburg 1960 - First edition. Square octavo. Cloth and illustrated papercovered boards. A bit of foxing to the boards, near fine in very good dustwrapper with a bit of foxing, small stains, and slight loss at the crown. Noted African-American artist's previously unknown, self-published children's book, apparently prepared while she was a student in Germany. Thompson, an abstract expressionist painter who was a protege of James A. Porter at Howard University, went on to study at the Fine Art Academy in Hamburg on his advice. She returned to the U.S. in 1961, but after a brief stay, returned to Europe where she worked for most of the next two decades. Eventually she became artist-in-residence at Howard, and then later moved to Atlanta where she remained for the rest of her life. Her work is in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Brooklyn Museum, the American Federation of Arts in New York City, and many others. *OCLC* locates no copies, and we can find no mention of copies elsewhere, including in the art references that discuss Thompson.
