Reuven Rubin

November 22, 2010

Galati, Romania, 1893 – Israel, 1974

Signing his first name in Hebrew letters and his last in Roman letters, Reuven Rubin was constantly working to integrate his Eastern European childhood, his Western European education and his love for his chosen country, Israel. Rubin studied in Israel in 1912 at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design but soon found that his modern style did not fit in at the school and left for Paris where he studied at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts. After a short period of time in the United States, Rubin immigrated to Israel in 1923. He was one of the founders of the new Eretz Yisrael style and is well-known for his Cezzanesque style of painting. Rubin applied his wide knowledge of modern art around the world to Israel´s landscapes producing works that capture the light and character of the land in a delicate and interesting way.
