Do try to see the exhibit “Pulp Fashion: The Art of Isabelle de Borchgrave,” if
you live in the San Francisco area or are visiting there. A painter by training,
the Belgian artist now works in paper to recreate masterpieces of clothing, either
those depicted in paintings or exhibited in museums as icons of fashion history.
I particularly loved her interpretations of Victorian and Fortuny gowns, and the
velvet/pomegranate gown worn by Eleanor of Toledo in the painting by Bronzino.
The exhibit will be at The Legion of Honor Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco through June 5th.
