Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. Second Edition, limited to 2,000 copies. Oversized folio and 80 full-page black and white plates. Contains graphic imagery. Lynes' surviving work, rediscovered 25 years after his death, established him as one of America's preeminent Surrealist-influenced photographers. This monograph reproduces both the fashion, dance, and portrait photography that made him a celebrated figure in 1930s New York as well as his hidden passion - photography of the male nude, usually in interpretation of scenes from Greek mythology.

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.
