Prepared together with the Jewish Museum in Vienna, this exhibition highlights the fascinating life of the iconic Helena Rubinstein (1872-1965). This is on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of her birth. Born in Podgorze, near Krakow, she was influenced by her mother’s upbringing of her and her seven sisters, especially in the use of beauty products. This is how she launched her empire in Australia, then in Europe, mainly in London and Paris. Then to the United States, where she enjoyed her greatest success. The exhibition features photos of Rubinstein in Krakow, various old beauty products, dresses, and a 1929 advertisement with her voice. The exhibition is organised with the support of the Krakow City Council.
