Hilary Knight collection. Placard designed for a 1974 revival of the 1927 musical Good News starring Alice Faye and John Payne. Lithograph on heavy card stock. Faux-newspaper design with separate stories giving information about the production. Signed by Mr. Knight. Limited edition of 500.

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.
