20 Description צ' וועגנ שלאפנ שונ עס שלאפט צ' וועלט. אונ אז עף ג''ט ארוס א'נ מ'טנ נאכט צ' כלא פעס א'נ צ' סראכעס א גרוסע א''מע פוגלענ שלאפנ נ'ט א'נ ק'עוועף וואלצ וו'ל עף ג''ט הלשנ דעם געוו'נלעכעף]...[ מאנ בוטרע גר''ט כ'נ צארעס צער אלמאנע אונ 'עסומע. In the center of the picture, on the top of a green and grey hill one can see a jewish musician playing a pipe. He is dressed in a peaked cap, a white shirt and dark crimson coat. He is standing in a half-turn to the left. A low white fence outlines the triangular form of the hill. It goes upwards from the left lower corner of the drawing, rounds the top of the hill and goes half way downwards the second slope, where it disappears as though in the depth of the space. A black stripe of the background is also following the outlines of the hill. Above this stripe in the corners there are two similar triangles of green and grey colour representing the sides of a raised curtain. (On the stage this small curtain was hanging before the main one.) The edges of the triangles are decorated with a white lace, reminding of a fence outlining the hill under them. There is a large inscription in Yiddish written on the black background to the left and to the right of the musician. It is written in white letters in four lines. It runs as follows: "The roads are already sleeping and sleeps the world. The rich men and the merchats are terror-stricken when he appears in the middle of the night. The birds are not sleeping in the Kiev wood when he makes his way to help to common people. Boitre does not have in store troubles for a widow and for an orfan."

20 Description The work represents an interior of a rich man's house. It shows a large and spacy room. A long table covered with white cloth is standing diagonally in its center. Four chairs are moved up to it from its left. A brown arm-chair with a hight richly decorated back is standing frontally to the right of the table. To the left, a little bit in the depth there is a reading-desk for praying. A white colomn with a lion on its top standing on the foreground boarders the room from the left. The whole central part is raised above the level of the floor. Three small steps are leading to it from the right. From the back side it is enclosed with a wall cut with archs, supported by two white colomns. A small half-arch develops into a highter and a wider one. Through the large opening between the colomns in the middle one can see a brown aron kodesh standing against the back wall. Two lions holding a crown are represented in its upper part. A small window can be seen above aron kodesh. To its left there is a staircase leading to a door. To its right there is a large window of Baroque outlines and in the depth in the opening between the colomn and the edge of the drawing another arch partly covered with red veil and another door can be seen. A piece of staircase is also represented in the right part of the drawing. A symmetrical curtain decorated with black fringe is crowning the whole picture. The work is painted in warm yellow and brown colours.

20 Description The work shows a stage design of an interior of a rich man's house. A broad dais mooved a little bit to the left occupies three quarters of the space. It has a form of a large triangular. A large table covered with a light blue cloth is placed diagonally along its left side. Four black chairs the backs of which are visible are standing behind the table. There are three colomns in the corners of the central triangular: two of them on the foreground and the third is in the depth. On the left colomn there hangs a candelabrum with two candles. Two wide windows with semicircular completion are seen in the wall behind the table. The houses of the shtetl painted on the backdrop can be seen through them. In the depth of the room by the side of the remote column there is a richly decorated aron kodesh. To the right there is a door, a small rectangular window, a curtain and a large stair leading to another door on the second floor. The whole space is overlapped in different directions with the arches of different scales resting upon the columns and walls. ##The work is painted in a blue color scale.

36 Summary and Remarks
"Boitre the Robber" is a play by Bielorussian jewish writer M.Kulbak. It was staged in Kiev GOSSET in 1936. A year later, after the arrest of M.Kulbak, the play was excluded from the repertoire of the theatre. The events described in the play take place in the beginning of the 19th century. Boitre - a jewish Robin Hood, a defender of poor people, a noble avenger - restores justice in jewish schtetls. The design of the theatre curtain is probably influenced by motives of jewish tombstones -mazevot. (See, for example, D.Goberman "Jewish Tombstones", Moscow, 1993, ill.No.155.) On the back side of the work there was painted a study of stage design "The Wood" for the same play.
