Lithograph print on Arches paper, circa 1965, pencil signed in Hebrew and English at lower right, by the highly important Israeli artist REUVEN RUBIN, numbered at lower left 127/200, the subject two figures in traditional Middle Eastern garb, one holding freshly caught fish, the other seated in front of a basket of fish. The print measures 26 1/2" by 20" in metal framing behind glass. I do not know the formal title but it was published as part of a series, circa 1965 (see embossed stamp of publisher Transworld Art at lower left). The work is very clean and ready for the wall. Allow for a few reflections. There appears to be a chip of glass on the inside of the glass near the embossed stamp at lower left corner. Rubin was the first Israeli artist to achieve international recognition, and his fine important oil paintings have reached well into the mid six figures at major auctions in Europe and the United States. He was born in Romania, and traveled to Jerusalem to study at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, in 1912. By the next year he was studying in Paris, and in 1922, after his first trip to New York, where Alfred Stieglitz promoted his work, an exhibition of his paintings was held in Jerusalem. Rubin settled in Palestine in 1923. In the nearly 50 years of life left to him after that, he firmly secured his place in the history of Jewish art. .
