Helena Rubinstein - The adventure of beauty - Exhibition catalogue - French
A pioneer in cosmetics, Helena Rubinstein (1872-1965) built an industrial empire in a few years. Leaving the Jewish quarter of Krakow at a very young age, she emigrated to Australia at the age of twenty-four where, thanks to a family recipe for facial cream and unfailing determination, she became an exceptional businesswoman.
A figure of female emancipation, she makes beauty and body care one of the keys to women's power and freedom. A visionary patron, it brings together one of the most important collections of modern art, first arts, haute couture clothing and 20th century jewellery. Modern and non-conformist, it solicits the most audacious architects and decorators to design its lounges and residences. Cultivating its image to promote its brand, it revolutionizes the use of advertising communication.
