For the first time in France, the mahJ is devoting an exhibition to Helena Rubinstein (1872- 1965). Featuring more than 300 exhibits from her famous collection – objects, garments, photographs, etchings, books, paintings, sculptures and tapestries, including works by Marc Chagall, Michel Kikoïne, Sarah Lipska, Louis Marcoussis, Elie Nadelman and Maurice Utrillo – it recounts the life and career of the woman whom Jean Cocteau dubbed “the empress of beauty.”
