|Artist or Collection||Isabelle De Borchgrave|
|Artist or Collection Story||Isabelle de Borchgrave’s story begins with creative explorations, both literal and figurative. She set up her painting practice in a home studio, offered classes, and explored her art in various mediums. During a visit to the Metropolitan Museum in New York in 1994, Isabelle dreamed up paper costumes. While keeping her brushes in hand and her paintings in mind, she worked on four big collections, all in paper and trompe l’œil, each of which set the scene for a very different world. Her explorations of clothing and embellishments span the globe and offer a glimpse into centuries past. Isabelle’s name is also closely linked to the world of design. By working together with Caspari, the potteries of Gien, Target, and Villeroy and Boch, Isabelle has turned her imagination into an art that’s accessible to anyone who wants to bring festivity into their home. Painted fabrics and paper, dinner services, curtains, sheets, decor with a personal touch for parties and weddings… All this tells of the world in which she has always loved to move.|
