Hilary Knight collection. This framed image of Kay Thompson by famed photographer Richard Avedon was presented to Hilary Knight by noted Harper's Bazaar photo editor and one-time Avedon assistant D.D. Ryan, who was responsible for introducing Mr. Knight to Thompson in 1954. The photocopied black and white image, assembled from multiple sheets, was then ornamented with crystal stones by Mr. Knight to create a one-of-a-kind object. He has been photographed numerous times before this image, his homage to his Eloise co-creator Kay Thompson. Original photograph dates to 1952; this reproduction from 2000. Hand-written description and signature by Mr. Knight on back of frame.
