English: In the enigmatic image The Scribe, Szyk depicts a man dressed in medieval or Renaissance garb, sitting at a drafting table writing a German expressionist poem with a fountain pen. Within the historical setting are several anachronistic 20th century details, including an airplane (visible from the window), an American one dollar bill, and a "Picasso" abstract painting (showing that Szyk was capable of working in that style).
