Maxwell Parrish used one of his regular models, Kitty Owens as the model for the reclining figure in "Daybreak," his "great painting", the epitome of his work. In 2006, the painting was sold for $7.6 million.
Anne Frank wrote her "Diary of a Young Girl" while in hiding from the Nazis in the sealed-off upper rooms of the annexe of her father's office building in Amsterdam. Although in the beginning it was an ordinary narrative, she began addressing her entries to characters from Cissy van Marxveldt's Joop ter Heul novels. Eventually her entries were only addressed to one character, Kitty.
