Hilary Knight collection. An original pencil and watercolor illustration by Mr. Knight on paper mounted on illustration board. Produced in 1991 for a show of Mr. Knight's work in conjunction with republication of his book The Circus is Coming. Depicts a pair of circus acrobats engaged in a balancing act. One-of-a-kind, suitable for framing. Signed by Mr. Knight.

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.
