One of Jerusalem's greenest and most beautiful neighborhoods, Ein Kerem is characterized by crumbling walls, luscious greenery, and ancient religious buildings. This gorgeous serigraph portrays the picturesque area in sensational detail and stunning color: the tonal brown and cream brickwork of the buildings and walls in the foreground is perfectly offset by the delicate pink blossom and rich earth opposite. A creamy pathway leads up the hill towards a series of low, red-roofed buildings surrounded by trees. Evocative, calming and beautiful, this serigraph will make a stunning addition to your home or a wonderful gift.
Reuven Rubin was born to a Hassidic family in Romania in 1983; he arrived in Israel in 1912 to study at the Bezalel Academy. Having rejected the school’s classic approach and methodology, he traveled to Paris and then America in pursuit of his studies. Upon returning to Israel, he joined the artists’ rebellion against Bezalel’s teachings and founded a modern, eclectic style known as “Eretz Yisrael”. Inspired by Europe’s modern art, Rubin’s Cezanne-esque art features sun-drenched landscapes filled with people from all walks of life. Rubin served as Israel’s ambassador to Romania from 1948 – 1950; designed backdrops for various Israeli theaters; and held solo and group exhibitions in Israel, Romania, France, England, America and Italy. His sought-after pieces are displayed in galleries and private collections across the world.
