Catalogue Note

Eugene Kolb discussed Lubin's early work and notes: "...Aryeh Lubin was acquainted with the country even before settling there in 1923. Born in Chicago in 1897 into a family whose atmosphere was permeated with a Jewish Spirit and with Hebrew culture, he studied in Tel Aviv and later at the Chicago Art Institute. He returned to Palestine as a volunteer in the Jewish Legion, and came back to settle permanently in 1923. Lubin was thus more familiar with modern art than most of his colleagues, having acquired eclectical experience in all styles. In this way, he became one of the progressives of his group." (Eugene Kolb, "Art in Israel" in Cecil Roth (ed.), Jewish Art An Illustrated History, 1961, page 914-915).
