Exhibition at the Jewish Museum, New York, 31 October 2014 - 22 March 2015;
then at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, 21 April - 12 July 2015

Helena Rubinstein (1872-1965), the great 20th-century cosmetics entrepreneur, changed the way women saw themselves, using her own remarkable life and spectacular art collections as a model. Rubinstein broke free from the constraints of her 19th-century, small-town, Polish Jewish background to become a giant of the beauty industry and an international household name.

This exhibition catalogue traces the path of this remarkable early feminist and visionary art patron who ornamented her salons and homes with splendid artworks-Surrealist murals, modernist portraits, Art Deco furniture, Venetian mirrors, and one of the era's great collections of African and Oceanic art.
