Jan Rauchwerger was born in 1942 in Turkmenistan to where his family was evacuated from Kharkov, Ukraine because of the war. In 1954-61 he studied painting at the T.H Shevchenk High School of Art adjoining the Kiev Academy of Art. He became admirer of El Greco. Jan serves the Soviet Army for 3 years until 1964. The year later he became a student of the Russian artist, Vladimir Weisberg, which began a dialogue that continued till Mr. Weisberg's death in 1985. In 1973 Jan immigrated to Israel and soon became fully integrated into the local art scene. Very much a "painter's painter", he is inspired both by his cultural heritage - the Old Masters he studied in the great museum collections of Russia - and by the Israeli society and landscape in which he lives and creates. His passion for painting endows almost everything with the "right" to be a subject. This includes family members as well as still-life objects, landscapes, figures, models. Once in the care of Jan, they become part of a special relationship infused with intimacy and closeness. Jan had many exhibitions in museums (Haifa Museum, Rubin Museum, Ramat Gan Museum) and galleries across Israel (Bineth Gallery, Kibbutz Cabri Gallery) and abroad (Schloss Britz, Berlin, the Moscow Palette Gallery, Galerie Inge Herbert, Berlin).
The recent retrospective by Jan Rauchwerger, Shades of Feeling Works from 1970-2003, at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem is traveling abroad. Jan lives and works in Jaffa, Israel.
