"I believe the human form is always contemporary and just as significant today as the moment of its creation."--Jefferson D. Rubin

Jefferson D. Rubin was a brilliant young artist whose devotion to humanistic art embraces the poetry of sculpture that descends from ancient and Renaissance antecedents. A Colorado native, he studied in the United States and Italy, and was founder, director, and principal maestro of La Scuola Classical Sculpture School in Denver. Rubin exhibited in galleries and museums across the country and abroad, and his rare pieces are prized in many private collections.

Rubin wrote, "I gave my heart to nature and my soul to art. I imagined myself as a pre-historic man, an Indian and an Italian. . . . I carved the stone as if it were fossilized semen . . . the rhythm, the breath, the metamorphosis of life. I carved by hand. I was primitive. I loved art and lost myself in time. . . ."

He died in a tragic mountain accident in 1995 at the age of 36.

The Jefferson D. Rubin Memorial Fund exists to keep alive the idealism of the human form and spirit in classical sculpture. That was the purpose of La Scuola and the soaring vision of its founder and his muse.

In the book's introduction Marian Granfield offers her insights into the classical-inspired work of Jefferson D. Rubin and shares their first meeting and the close friendship that grew between them.

Rubin's art appears ancient at first glance. With its earthen materials of terra cotta, marble, and stone and material such as hydrocal resin made to look earthen, this is understandable. Rubin does not discourage such an impression either. "Classical ideation has no sense of time as well as a great sense of time. In my mind I have a little adage in which I say 'think antique'...The reason for my classical work stems back to my love of archaeology and anthropology. Rather than digging up the work I make it myself." In keeping with his love of archaeology, most of Rubin's art works are fragmentary in form, as if relics of classical or Renaissance civilization.

Rubin however is an artist of recent date. He died in 1995 in a mountaineering accident. On closer and longer viewing, his art works--even the fragments, but the occasional full figures too--give off a more highly developed sensitivity than classical or Renaissance sculpture or other art. Greek classical sculpture sought the ideal; and the Western classical art of Rome aimed to glorify the state. Thought professedly classical in tone and style, Rubin's art involves neither of these intentions. Even Renaissance art seems formalized by comparison. For though Renaissance art (e. g., Michaelangelo's sculture David or paintings of religious or secular figures) was a patent movement to representing humanistic qualities, the religious, political, and social (e. g., class) realities of the time were reflected in this. There is none of this in Rubin's sculpture.

Though evoking classical art by imitating its framents, Rubin's sculpture is distinguished from it by a harmony and romantic sensitivity which gives his art a characteristic fullness. For Rubin, fragment is form, not accidental, incomplete, and often truncated clue of an art of the past. This fullness is most evident in Rubin's larger sculptures of entire individuals, especially ones of women in coquettish poses. In Rubin's Rodin-like sculptures too with individuals seemingly emerging from a rock form or three-dimensional on the sides of a Greek-like vessel--which can be looked at as larger fragments--there is none of the hard-edgedness or stylization of the sources. With unique and consummate skill allied with extraordinary sensitivity, Rubin makes it seem that the most difficult, flinty art materials he works with were just waiting for someone like him to come along to yield their most fully-developed human forms they embryonically bore within them.
