Description An art class that is part of the rehabilitation program of the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society (JCRS) meets for a session. Male patients sit on folding chairs in a half circle around a male model wearing a robe, pajamas, slippers and hat. Max Lazarus, a German-Jewish artist, is pictured second from the left. Twenty-three charcoal drawings hang on the walls. The JCRS was a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients that was founded in 1904 by a group of immigrant Jewish workingmen along with the support of several leading physicians and rabbis in Denver, Colorado. It was located on West Colfax Avenue just outside of Denver. This print does not appear to be on photographic emulsion paper and may be a page from The JCRS Bulletin.
