Fleur Cowles

January 1, 2019

1996 – London, England

Fleur Cowles is a remarkable woman of many talents. After success as Associate Editor of the popular American magazines Look and Quick, she created and edited Flair magazine and the Flair book, both of which made publishing history. She was an ambassador of the United States to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. In addition to the Queen’s medal, she has been decorated by the governments of France, Brazil, Greece and Spain for further activities. As an author, her books include “Bloody Precedent”, “The Case of Salvador Dali”, “Friends and Memories”, “All Too True”, “The Flower Game”, “Flower Decorations”, “People as Animals”, “If I were an Animal”, “An Artist’s Journey”, “The Life and Times of the Rose”, “She Made Friends and Kept Them” and “The Best of Flair”, now re-launched by Rizzoli in October, 1999. In 1994 she was honored by Texas University in the following ways: by their Fleur Cowles Fellowship program (globally and in perpetuity) for the study in the three aspects of her life: art, literature and painting, by the reproduction of her London studio in the Harry Ransom Institute of the University and by making her a member of Texas University’s Council. A world-renowned painter, in 1965 she received an invitation to exhibit in the seventh Sao Paulo Biennial. Her work has since been shown in fifty-five one-woman exhibitions throughout the world, including six museums. She serves as a trustee, board member and advisory council member for a wide variety of foundations, trusts and humanitarian organizations. Fleur Cowles is married to Tom Montague Meyer, CBE, and resides in one of London’s celebrated historic eighteenth-century homes.
