Modern Jewish Art
  Lazar Krestin, At the cheder (?), 1913

© Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Photographer: Unknown,

Four young students sitting around a table studying from books in front of them. All of them have long side–locks, and wear dark long coats and hats. The three youngsters on the left, who are wearing brimmed rounded hats, are discussing. The fourth on the right, whose beard is budding, is wearing a brimless square hat, studying by himself, his head resting on his right hand. A picture of a city (Jerusalem?) is hanging at the center of the light-blue wall at the background, flanked by two double-candled lamps. A Hanukah lamp is hanging beneath, its back wall is decorated by flanking two lions and a text. A high stack of books is seen on a chest of drawers on the left, near a big-bellied lamp that is flanked by two pairs of golden-colored candles. A rectangular frame (probably a mirror) hangs above the books and lamps. A door is seen on the far right. 

Summary and Remarks

Although the painting is titled "At the Cheder", it looks like a yeshivah, where students study by themselves without a teacher.
