Countess Isabelle De Borchgrave d'Altena (born Isabelle Jeanne Marie Alice Jacobs) (Belgian, b. 1946). Large acrylic on paper painting in the form of a kimono in bright blue, orange, and green.

Provenance: Distinguished corporate collection, Minnesota.

Height: 56 in x width: 43 in.


The color is bold and bright. Light creases and light wear throughout. There is wear and light tears to where the Kimono and the hanging nail meet. To both armpit areas, there are tears; please see the listing image. To the green areas, there are scattered areas with visible glue; however, it appears to be original. To the lower right margin, there is an area where the blue paint is not fully painted on the green paper; however, it does not appear to be a restoration but original. The backside of the Kimono could not be inspected to minimize the possibility of damaging the artwork. No visible sign of restoration under UV light.
