Modern Jewish Art
  Akselrod, Illustration for the book of poems by I.Harik

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Radovan, Zev, 04.1994
The picture represents a view of the shtetl. The composition of the drawing is devided horizontally into three tiers. A street of the shtetl going vertically through the drawing devides it into two parts. It stops at a house in the upper part. Two houses are situated to the right of the street and three ones to the left. The space of the street between the houses forms "yards". In the upper "yard" two carpenters are working at a carpenter's bench. In the middle "yard" three talking people sit around a table and in the lower part a dressmaker is working on a sewing-machine. The fences of different scales surround the houses. A barrel lies at the lower left house. A man sticks out from the window of the middle left house. On the roof of the same house stands a child. In the upper right part one can see two grazing sheeps on a medow. There is an illegible Yiiddish text written under the depiction, that is probably a quotation from a poem by I.Harik. Above the depiction there is a figure "6", which probably marks the number of page.
