Helena Rubinstein: Madame's Collection

Author(s): Hélène Joubert (Text by); Hélène Joubert

african, asian & oceanic art

Helena Rubinstein was the founder of the highly
successful, international cosmetics empire which bore her
name. "Madame" - as she liked to be called - acquired a
vast quantity of works, furniture, and artifacts of every type,
in the process becoming a legendary patron and arbiter of
taste. The most remarkable and innovative components of
this astonishing collection, dispersed after her death at a
historic series of auctions in 1966, were its African
holdings, with the remainder being made up of Oceanic,
Indonesian, and pre-Hispanic art. It is the history of this
collection, its content, and above all its spirit, that Helena
Rubinstein: Madame's Collection reconstructs.
