Prophets and Visionaries: Reuven Rubin's Early Years: 1914-23, offered the public an unprecedented opportunity to study works from the hitherto largely unexplored early years of Israel's artistic icon Reuven Rubin (1893-1974). The exhibition illuminated the early period of Rubin's work, from 1914 when he lived and worked in Romania through his very first works in Palestine in 1923. Prophets and Visionaries featured some 50 works by Rubin, from collections in Israel and abroad and from the collection of the Israel Museum, highlighting a number of works, that were on display for the first time.
