The couple on the bench
Carl Spitzweg: Das Paar auf dem Bank (um1860) The Couple on the Bench
This picture reminds me of the Mazda light advertisement, And in Life's Evening Time, though in fact it's really quite different. Nevertheless it shows us a contented (presumably) and not-so-young couple taking a break on their stroll through the woods.
Carl Spitzweg was a German artist of the 19th century, often making his pictures a humourous look at life. Another well known work of his is The Bookworm.
