One of Israel’s most popular and acclaimed artists, Reuven Rubin (1893–1974) painted the landscape of Mandate Palestine and the young Israeli State. Today, the modernist home of the artist, dating from 1930, houses a collection of his work, a gallery for temporary exhibits of modern Israeli art, and a multimedia presentation of Rubin’s life. On the top floor, Rubin’s studio and living space have been kept as he left them. Stop here after visiting the home of Israel’s first great Hebrew writer, Haim Nachman Bialik.
