I am Eloise. I am at the Museum! Fans of any age will delight to sport our rawther glamourous women’s cotton tee shirt depicting Eloise’s debut at the museum across the park from The Plaza. Pictured in her iconic ensemble and framed for the galleries, the free-spirited and precocious Eloise comes to life on our fashionable semi-fitted tee. Wear her home and she’ll remind you that life is never boring.
The New-York Historical Society celebrates the feisty charm and audacious spirit of Eloise, who continues to be a picture book superstar more than 60 years after her debut. Eloise at the Museum, on view June 30, 2017 - October 9, 2017, reveals the creative collaboration between cabaret star Kay Thompson (1909–1998) and the young illustrator Hilary Knight (b. 1926) that brought the precocious character to life. The exhibition showcases more than 75 objects, ranging from original manuscript pages to sketchbooks, portraits, photographs, and vintage dolls.
