Hilary Knight collection. A one-of-a-kind figural iron chair representing Albert Einstein from noted industrial artist Ries Niemi. For 25 years, Ries Niemi has been working mostly with metal, welding, fabricating, machining, forging, and shaping metal in just about every way. He has been involved with public art since the late 1970s, completing over 25 projects across the US. For many years, Ries has been creating, showing, and selling his personal, quirky and humorous artwork in galleries and museums for three decades. 1997.
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.
