Reuven Rubin (1893-1974) is the eighth of 13 children born to a Romanian Jewish Hasidic family in Galaţi. Rubin studies art at Bezalel Academy of Art in Jerusalem and Ecole des Beaux Arts and Academie Colarossi in Paris.
“Although born in Romania and trained in art
in Paris and Romania, Reuven Rubin …
is a distinctly and distinctively Israeli artist.”
‘I am not at all interested in copying nature.
I wish only to express the idea of a Supreme Being.
I am a seeker of a God who will end the suffering of humanity.
I see Him in colour, line, movement’
Christie’s (quoted in A. Werner, Rubin, Tel-Aviv, 1958, n.p.).
