  • 3 Typed Letters Signed and 2 Cards Signed by Reuven Rubin to the first purchaser accompany this lot.

    Provenance: Reuven Rubin to Lawrence Katz of Pennsylvania; by descent to the present owner.

    Reuven Rubin was a Rumanian émigré who became Israel's first ambassador to Rumania. Rubin was one of the first Israeli artists to achieve international recognition while alive. He studied briefly at the Bezalel school and mounted his first one man show in 1924 in Jerusalem. Commenting on his new country country Rubin said: "Here in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and Tiberias I feel myself reborn. Only here do I feel that life and nature are mine. The gray clouds of Europe have disappeared. My sufferings and the war too are ended. All is sunshine, clear light and happy creative work. As the desert revives and blooms under the hands of the pioneers, so do I feel awakening in me all the latent energies... I have pitched my tent on these ancient hills and my desire to tie together the ends of the thread that history has broken" (Rubin, 1926).
