Eloise LOVES Christmas, and she's spreading holiday cheer all over The Plaza Hotel. She has quite a bit of trimming to do: the halls, the tree, and everything in sight!
And here's the thing of it: The best parts are dreaming of Santa coming to The Plaza and waking up to a gift that sparkles and trinkles. Ooooo Eloise absolutely loves Christmas.
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.
