Original small size drawing by the Arie Lubin depicting a typical Lubin scene with oriental figures. Color pencil on sketch paper. Pencil-signed in Hebrew, upper left. Arie Lubin (1897-1980) After immigrating to Eretz Israel in his youth, Lubin moved to America with his family, came back, but left again to study art in Chicago and in Europe. In 1923 he returned for good, having acquired a firsthand knowledge of modern painting. The composition of his still-lifes trom the 1920s tends toward abstraction, influenced by Purism and Cubism, as absorbed during his European sojourn. While these works single him out as the pioneer of abstract painting in this country, Lubin's plunge into abstraction was to be of short duration. In the late 1920s, he represented figures with stylized geometric lines and painted Cezannesque portraits and landscapes. Lubin is perhaps best known for his scenes of urban Arab life, painted in a bright spectrum of colors characteristic of his entire production.
