    This is the biggest of a few schoolroom scenes by Steen. The structure is approximately in view of Raphael's fresco of 'The School of Athens' in the Vatican, portraying the best researchers of days of yore. Constructing this wild scene in light of the well known social occasion of greats, Steen made a visual joke, which is likewise reverberated in the accidental detail. Here you can read more detailed review. The grown-ups appear to be careless in regards to the raucous conduct of their understudies. At the privilege is an owl, conventional image of insight and characteristic of the goddess Athena. Here a kid offers it a couple of displays insinuating the Dutch axiom 'What utilize are glasses or light if the owl does not have any desire to see?' This could apply to the two students and educators.
