Rubin, Reuven (1893-1974) - 1922 Self-Portrait with a Flower (Rubin Museum, Tel Aviv, Israel)

Oil on canvas; 97 x 60 cm.

Reuven Rubin was a Romanian-born Israeli painter and Israel's first ambassador to Romania. Rubin Zelicovici (later Reuven Rubin) was born in Galati to a poor Romanian Jewish Hasidic family. In 1912, he left for Ottoman-ruled Palestine to study art at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. Finding himself at odds with the artistic views of the Academy's teachers, he left for Paris, France, in 1913 to pursue his studies at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts. At the outbreak of World War I, he was returned to Romania, where he spent the war years. In 1921, he traveled to the United States with his friend and fellow artist, Arthur Kolnik, with whom he had shared a studio in Cernauti. In New York City, the two met artist Alfred Stieglitz, who was instrumental in organizing their first American show at the Anderson Gallery. Following the exhibition, in 1922, they both returned to Europe. In 1923, Rubin emigrated to Mandate Palestine.

The history of Israeli art began at a very specific moment in the history of international art, at a time of Cezannian rebellion against the conventions of the past, a time typified by rapid stylistic changes. Thus Jewish national art had no fixed history, no canon to obey. Rubin began his career at a fortunate time. The painters who depicted the country’s landscapes in the 1920s rebelled against Bezalel. They sought current styles in Europe that would help portray their own country’s landscape, in keeping with the spirit of the time. Rubin’s Cezannesque landscapes from the 1920s were defined by both a modern and a naive style, portraying the landscape and inhabitants of Israel in a sensitive fashion. His landscape paintings in particular paid special detail to a spiritual, translucent light.

In Palestine, he became one of the founders of the new Eretz-Yisrael style. Recurring themes in his work were the biblical landscape, folklore and people, including Yemenite, Hasidic Jews and Arabs. Many of his paintings are sun-bathed depictions of Jerusalem and the Galilee. Rubin might have been influenced by the work of Henri Rousseau whose style combined with Eastern nuances, as well as with the neo-Byzantine art to which Rubin had been exposed in his native Romania. In accordance with his integrative style, he signed his works with his first name in Hebrew and his surname in Roman letters.

Rubin was among the formulators of the primitivistic trend in the Eretz Israel art of the 1920s, which, in the spirit of the Zionist revival, saw the East as a primal, innocent world. His primitive linoleum cuts from his early years in the country, influenced by Medieval, German Expressionist and Modern Russian art, constitute a break with his earlier work abroad. In 1924, he was the first artist to hold a solo exhibition at the Tower of David, in Jerusalem. That year he was elected chairman of the Association of Painters and Sculptors of Palestine. From the 1930s onwards, Rubin designed backdrops for Habima Theater and other theaters.

His biography, published in 1969, is titled My Life - My Art. He died in Tel Aviv in 1974, after having bequeathed his home on 14 Bialik Street and a core collection of his paintings to the city of Tel Aviv. The Rubin Museum opened in 1983. Rubin's paintings are now increasingly sought after. At a Sotheby's auction in New York in 2007, his work accounted for six of the ten top lots.

Yes, I am still painting (pictures). The problem for me is that there are lots more things to do, like deciding which car I should buy, or going to the dentist, or thinking which lunch I should order :-) , or the small worries such as "I should tidy up the rooms!", "I should go to see the wild orchids!" or "I should......" "I should......" "I should ......" and so forth.

Silly, really, but with these (even trivial) things I really can't concentrate on painting enough. So it is very slow and as apart from summer time, I have much less time for painting so I should (!!!!) paint not just a painting, but as many paintings as I can. It is enjoyable, but so slow. :-((( And yet I would like to show some of my photographs :-(((
Sorry, my friends :-( and thank you :-)
