Encounter at the exhibition A History of Beauty: Helena Rubinstein’s Miniature Rooms (in Hebrew)

Encounter with the exhibition curator, Galit Landau Epstein

The collection of seventeen magnificent miniature rooms, originally belonging to the eponymous founder of the beauty empire Helena Rubinstein (1870–1965), was donated to the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 1968. These rooms—originally on display in the collector’s living room—are part of a tradition of miniature houses designed to enchant and amaze the viewer, which first began in Germany and the Netherlands in the sixteenth century. These tiny time capsules offer a unique glimpse into everyday life in past centuries.
