Helena Rubinstein Collection at the Quai Branly Museum from November 19, 2019 to June 28, 2020. Examining non-Western arts through the collection of Helena Rubinstein. The exhibition reveals the fascination that African art held for this pioneer of cosmetics, an avant-garde patron and collector in the early 20th century. An extraordinary figure, the first 20th century business woman, a self-made and emancipated woman, a visionary...
The exhibition places the spotlight on her passion for non-Western arts - primarily African art - through sixty pieces, as well as her fascination for their expressive intensity and character. It was in the 1910s that she first discovered these arts through the sculptor Jacob Epstein, an interest that continued as she encountered the avant-garde collectors in Paris and which she brought into her interior décors in Paris, New York and London, not solely for aesthetic reasons but to educate her female clientèle at her beauty salons worldwide and through her participation in major exhibitions.
This exhibition was made thanks to the support of Marc Ladreit de Lacharrière
