Is The Woman In This 19th Century Painting A Time Traveler?


This painting appears to show a woman with something in her hands. The painting is called "The Expected One". It was painted in 1860 by Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller.

It was recently discovered by a younger audience causing Gerald Weinpolter who is the CEO of the art agency austrian-paintings to point out to Vice that the woman is off to church with a small prayer book in her hands.

But still, one can't help but see through the lens of 2020 and think that it is perfectly normal for it to be an iPhone, despite it being painted 160 years ago!

I have all sorts of questions about art, including "Dogs Playing Poker"!
