Jan Rauchwerger

Bairam Ali, Turkmenistan, 1942

Jan Rauchwerger studied art at at the Kiev Art School and the Moscow Polygraphic Institute. He immigrated to Israel in 1973, and settled in Holon. While some of his works are reminiscent of Bonnard, he is his own master. Concentrating on the everyday of housescapes and interiors, nudes, still lifes, and domestic animals, he brings a phenomenal sense of color and a sensitivity to every nuance of subject. At first glance, his works seem simple, accessible and non-provocative but they quickly suck you in and ask deep questions of the viewer. Rauchwerger´s art embodies the fusion between the tradition of classical painting and the modernist sensibility. Although well established as an Israeli artist, both culturally and socially, Rauchwerger still carries within him his earlier artistic life in the former Soviet Union. Rauchwerger currently lives and works in Jaffa-Tel Aviv.
