Reuven Rubin

Reuven Rubin was born in Galati as Reuven Zelicovici and studied art in Paris. He immigrated to Palestine in 1912 where he attempted to study at Bezalel Academy of Art but found himself at odds with the artistic views of the academy’s teachers. As a result, Reuven Rubin returned to Paris, and then moved to Romania where he made his residence between 1916 and 1919. Rubin lived in New York City between 1920 and 1922 where he met Alfred Stieglitz. With the support of Mr. Stieglitz, Reuven Rubin presented his first show in 1920 at the Anderson Gallery.

Reuven Rubin then returned to Palestine in 1922 with the intention of creating a new original Eretz-Yisraeili style. Many recurring themes in the work of Reuven Rubin are the Palestinian/Israeli landscape with its folklore and population. He was greatly influenced by Henri Rousseau and attempt to incorporate Rousseau’s style with Eastern nuances. Reuven Rubin had an integrative style that was shown in the way he signed his works: his first name in Hebrew and his surname in Roman letters. In 1924, Rueven Rubin made history for himself with his solo exhibition at the Tower of David in Jerusalem.

Rueven Rubin won the Israel prize for fine arts in 1973. In 1969, the biography of Reuven Rubin entitled My Life was published.
