" Haifa, the Technion " is a painting in watercolor by the Israeli painter Joseph Zaritsky . The painting, dated December 16, 1924 , is considered one of the earliest works of Zaritsky's work.
The painting depicts a corridor in the old Technion building , which used to be the Technion and is now the Madatech - the National Museum of Science, Technology and Space .
