The Frick Pittsburgh opens a major exhibition of works by Isabelle de Borchgrave

PITTSBURGH, PA.- The Frick Pittsburgh announces the opening of a major exhibition at The Frick Art Museum on October 13, 2018. Isabelle de Borchgrave: Fashioning Art from Paper features meticulously crafted and astonishingly beautiful life-size paper sculptures based on historic clothing, created completely from artfully painted, pleated, crumpled, and manipulated paper by contemporary artist, Isabelle de Borchgrave (Belgian, born 1946). The exhibition will remain on view through January 6, 2019.

Isabelle de Borchgrave: Fashioning Art from Paper exhibition presents the full breadth of the artist’s exploration of historical costume through contemporary paper sculpture and will include examples from all of her major series, beginning with her exploration of 300 years of fashion history in the works created for Papiers à la Mode. Works from her Splendors of the Medici series are inspired by Italian Renaissance costumes portrayed in Old Master paintings, and the series The World of Mariano Fortuny explores the work of the iconoclastic Spanish fashion designer, famously based in Venice. Borchgrave’s most recent series, Les Ballet Russes, features interpretations of modernist costumes designed by artists like Picasso, Bakst and Matisse. The exhibition also includes one new work—the Frick’s recently commissioned piece inspired by one of our collection’s best-known paintings—Peter Paul Rubens’ Portrait of Charlotte-Marguerite de Montmorency, Princess of Condé, ca. 1610.

Isabelle de Borchgrave: Fashioning Art from Paper follows the popular exhibitions, Killer Heels: the Art of the High-Heeled Shoe (2016) and Undressed: A History of Fashion in Underwear (2017), as the third installment in an ongoing series of exhibitions at the Frick that examine various aspects of fashion.

Executive Director Robin Nicholson says, "Our presentation of fashion-focused exhibitions in recent years has resulted in increased attendance to the Frick and has attracted a large number of new visitors.” He continues, "I am confident that Isabelle de Borchgrave's marvelous paper sculptures will delight our visitors. Her work is breathtaking and must be seen in person to be fully appreciated."
