Reuven Rubin (1893-1974)

Reuven Rubin was a Romanian-born Israeli painter and Israel's first ambassador to Romania. 

He was celebrated as a pioneer in the Israeli art world. His paintings use radiant, earthy colors and simple techniques, reminiscent of the work of French-Russian artist Marc Chagall, to explore the biblical landscapes of his home in Israel and its folk history. He regularly drew the countryside and people who inhabited it, transforming his observations into more fantastical and dream-like scenes through his unique artistic vision. Reuven Rubin died in 1974 n Tel Aviv. His house became the "Rubin House" Museum where all his works are shown.
