Israeli artist Reuven Rubin (1893 – 1974) was known for his landscape paintings and use of earthy, radiant colors. His contribution to the Israeli art world is highly revered. Religious themes, folklore, and Jewish ethnic tribes like Yemenites and Hasidic Jews often featured in his paintings. Road to Safed, an oil on canvas painting rendered by Reuven Rubin in 1927, is a key highlight of Clarke Auctions’ forthcoming New Years Estate Auction. The piece reflects the artist’s trademark style of depicting Israeli landscapes in a warm, earthy color palette. Also on offer is a similar landscape painting by Rubin depicting three groups of homes set amid lush greenery.
Another lot of interest is Chinese artist Xiao-Hua Gao’s painting Ladies with Parasol. Born in Tongbai, Henan in 1955, Gao completed his graduation from the Oil Painting Department of Sichuan Fine Arts Academy in 1982. He formerly taught at the Sichuan Fine Arts Academy and Central Academy of Fine Arts. Also available is a white earthenware ceramic pitcher with colored engobe and glaze. It was designed by the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. To view the complete catalog and browse other online auctions, visit Bidsquare.
