ISABELLE DE BORCHGRAVE EXHIBITION: 'FASHIONING ART FROM PAPER'
 

"Fashioning Art from Paper" explores 500 years of fashion through the breathtaking trompe l'oeil masterpieces of Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave. Through her expert manipulation of paper and paint, de Borchgrave creates sculptural replicas of historic garments found in early European paintings or collections from around the world — from the Renaissance finery of the Medici family and gowns worn by Queen Elizabeth I, to the creations of the grand couturiers of the 20th century such as Charles Frederick Worth and Paul Poiret. The exhibition includes de Borchgrave’s series "Les Ballet Russes," which interprets costumes designed by Léon Bakst, Giorgio de Chirico and Pablo Picasso, among others, as well as her "Kaftans" series, inspired by the Silk Road textiles of central Asia. The exhibition also highlights the creations of the eccentric early 20th-century artist Mariano Fortuny, a major source of inspiration for de Borchgrave.
