On the left side, there is a red Russian house which allows for inside vision. Underneath a lamp is a heated discussion amongst individuals on a table.

It generates emotions and poetry that Marc is typically associated with. Unlike his other paintings that reflected the oppression of the Jews, this painting depicts the joyful nature of Judaism. The painting is in line with the cubism stylistic approach that is inspired by geometric shapes such as the use of the arc. There is also the use of lines that is on the coexistence of the landscape and the sky. The medium used by Marc Chagall is oil paint and canvas to apply his paint. This enabled the outcome of the artwork, a peasant, to be colourful and display his imagination that is vibrant. There is a great balance of colour which is extremely formidable.
The painting's location is currently in a private collection. However, its prints are available on online platforms. Those appreciative of his work definitely have his print.
