Discussing Marcel Janco's work from the 1940s, Yona Fischer writes: "A disciple of the Zurich Cubists and Dadaists, he was a mature painter on his arrival in Israel in 1940. Since that time he has been the only exponent in Israel of an international trend of historical importance. Janco brought the ability to add new modes of expression to those already current...This he did by distorting the form, and reducing it to its dynamic elements by a direct, bold and essentially abstract application of colour." (Yona Fischer, Art in Israel, Benjamin Tammuz and Max Wykes-Joyce (eds.), 1963, p. 29-30).
Painted soon after the artist's arrival in Eretz Israel, Rosh Pina reflects Janco's fascination with the bright sunlight and the intense colors he found in the country's ever-changing landscapes.
