19th century woman checking her email.

Of course she isn't holding a cell phone she's holding a candle - but it's hard for me to see it as anything but a cell phone. 

But I wanted to post this because I love the coloring he used.

This painting, "The Prayer" is by Santiago Rusinol who painted both Satie and Valadon, and maybe both of them on the same canvas - more about that tomorrow.

Rusinol was a great painter but he had a really weird approach to hands, which always look excessively thin and spider-y.

I'd never heard of Rusinol outside of searching for images of Satie and Valadon, but he's apparently a very big deal in Spain.

They even put him on their money.
