Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized square quarto and profuse illustrations in full color. ISBN: 0002150832. A chronicle of Cowles' own insight and success as a practicing artist, and an often hilarious, frequently tender series of memoirs of the many artists and their work who shaped her imagination, both as a painter and a collector. Tight binding.

Sometime in the early ’50s, Hilary Knight’s drawings of naughty little girls for Mademoiselle magazine led to a meeting with author Kay Thompson (then a top nightclub performer)--and, of course, to the perpetually adored Eloise, the precocious Plaza dweller who in many ways is Knight’s alter ego. “Eloise will be celebrating her 60th birthday in 2015--not bad for a six-year-old,” says Knight. We’re honored to offer these personal pieces from Knight, who remains as stylish, outspoken, and original as the legendary little girl he brought to life.
