The Frick Pittsburgh is truly a one-of-a kind experience here in Pittsburgh. It offers a look deep into the Gilded Age history of industrialist and art collector Henry Clay Frick and his family who lived at Clayton House from 1883 to 1905. The Frick offers tours of the Victorian house where guests can see the Fricks' glamorous monogrammed china, original furniture, and decadent art collection, as well as an art museum which features exhibits throughout the year, the Car & Carriage Museum, and the Frick Cafe.
This fall, The Frick will present Isabelle de Borchgrave: Fashioning Art from Paper. This exhibition, opening October 13, 2018, marks the artist's first touring retrospective exhibition. It features Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave's life-size renditions of historic clothing created entirely from "painted, pleated, crumpled, and manipulated paper". The exhibition will feature examples from the entire breadth of de Borchgrave's work, including Papiers a la Mode, Splendors of the Medici, The World of Mariano Fortuny, and Les Ballet Russes. The immersive exhibition will be displayed throughout the Frick, "creating a dialogue with the museum's collection." Isabelle de Brochgrave: Fashioning Art from Paper will be at The Frick until January 6, 2019.
