Jan De Ruth

Galerie De Tours

The moods of Israel as seen in the faces and figures of its people. These are sensitive studies of mother-and-child, and compositions of women alone or in twos, painted with sensuous delight and glowing color. De Ruth has a remarkable ability to express his reactions to people with a few penetrating brushstrokes of thick, full bodied paint, which makes his portraits of various Israeli types the outstanding section of this exhibition.
