Hilary Knight collection. A cardboard cutout of Eloise and her dog Weenie, produced for promotional use in bookstores. Lithograph on cardboard stock. Very collectible, one of only approximately 100 produced. Signed by Mr. Knight. Circa 2000.
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.
