Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection. An original pencil illustration by Mr. Knight on Strathmore illustration board of Norma Shearer as she appeared alongside Clark Gable in 1939s Idiot's Delight. Commissioned by Vanity Fair in 2000 for an article on legendary MGM costumer Adrian, but unpublished. Includes copious notes on Ms. Shearer's costume, hand-written by Mr. Knight alongside the drawing. One-of-a-kind, suitable for framing. Signed by Mr. Knight.

About David Duncan

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.
