This detailed serigraph will make an interesting and beautiful gift or take pride of place on any wall in your home! It features the artist's gorgeous interpretation of the ancient and iconic port at Jaffa on central Israel's Mediterranean coastline. The antique town boasts a flourishing market represented by the layers of colorful brick buildings. A brick wall guards the town against the steep cliffs leading to the sea: packages, boxes and a resting camel line the dark brown wall. A blue sea dotted with merchant boats fills the right of the frame; potted plants and cacti lie behind a low stool and content, sleepy goat. This piece boasts warm colors and stunning style, making it perfect for any room.
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.
