  • The Jewish Museum - Helena Rubinstein: Beauty Is Power
    was arguably the first modern self made woman magnate Rubinstein was ahead of her time in her embrace of cultural and artistic diversity She was not only an early patron of European and Latin American modern art but also one of the earliest leading collectors of African and Oceanic sculpture The exhibition reunites selections from Rubinstein s famed art collection dispersed at auction in 1966 featuring works by Pablo Picasso Elie Nadelman Frida Kahlo Max Ernst Leonor Fini Joan Miró and Henri Matisse among others as well as more than thirty works from her peerless collection of African and Oceanic art Other highlights include Rubinstein s beloved miniature period rooms jewelry and clothing designed by Cristóbal Balenciaga Elsa Schiaparelli and Paul Poiret Rubinstein s savvy for self promotion is seen in portraits of her made by the leading artists of her day from Marie Laurencin to Andy Warhol Also on display are vintage advertisements cosmetics products and promotional films related to her beauty business Madame established her business Helena Rubinstein Co in Melbourne in 1903 Inspired by the tradition of European literary salons Rubinstein conceived of her beauty salons as intimate environments where progressive ideas were exchanged under the guidance of a sophisticated patroness After her initial success in Australia she opened beauty salons in the grandest districts of London and Paris At the outbreak of World War I she moved to the United States where she founded her first New York salon in 1915 By the 1920s Rubinstein was a wealthy and influential businesswoman with salons worldwide and was becoming known as an art collector Her eclectic tastes distinguished her from the conservative elitism prevalent in fashionable circles Rubinstein s fascination with different cultures and artistic approaches was reflected in her clothes art furniture and jewelry The kaleidoscopic variety of styles represented in the decor of her salons and homes served to level snobbish aesthetic taste and expand the notion of who and what could be considered beautiful The exhibition title refers to one of the first slogans Madame used to promote her cosmetics Beauty is Power is a bold phrase that evokes Rubinstein s distinctive blend of commercial savvy and inherent feminism At the turn of the century the use of cosmetics associated with the painted faces of actresses and prostitutes was widely frowned upon by the middle class A model of independence Rubinstein rejected this convention producing and marketing the means for ordinary women to transform themselves Her business challenged the myth of beauty and taste as inborn or something to which only the wealthy were entitled By encouraging women to define themselves as self expressive individuals Rubinstein contributed to their empowerment Today the term beauty salon means a hairdresser or a day spa But the Rubinstein salon was a place designed entirely for women where a client could learn not only how to improve her looks but also how to reconceive her standards of taste and to understand design color and art in order to express
