Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized quarto and profuse illustrations including over 100 full color plates. ISBN: 3791331957. This striking collection traces the evolution of a largely ignored, but immensely influential movement in modern art. It brings together a dazzling array of artists--including Paul Klee, Max Klinger, Alfred Kubin, Emil Nolde, and Max Ernst--who, inspired by the example of Arnold Bocklin, forged a unique aesthetic with enormous consequences for modern German art. Essays consider the connection between the visual arts and the rise of cabaret culture and satirical journals. 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.
