Hilary Knight collection. Gorgeously printed poster designed and illustrated in the Art Deco style by Mr. Knight in 1981 for beloved Big Band-era singer Fran Warren's successful return to the stage. Lithograph with separate gold ink printing on paper stock. Hand-numbered 27 of a limited edition of 100, signed by both Mr. Knight and Ms. Warren.
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.
