In This Life and the Next, their love blossoms like the spring cherry tree under which they walk hand in hand, a testament to their enduring bond. The old couple, resembling characters from The Man in the Chair painting of 1875, exude wisdom and grace as they navigate life's journey together. With each step through the gate, they embrace new adventures while cherishing cherished memories. Their love story echoes I'll Be Seeing You - an eternal promise to always be there for one another. Like Saint Jerome's devotion to his faith depicted in his 1626-27 painting or St. Christopher facing left on a 1521 engraving carrying burdens for others, this couple carries each other's joys and sorrows with unwavering support. In moments of tranquility reminiscent of Old Woman Asleep or Martin Luther Hurlbut's introspective portrait from 1840, they find solace in simple pleasures within their humble abode captured by Interior of a Peasant's Cottage. They share laughter over stories told by Fisherman smoking beside a stream from c. 1835 woodcut print. As time passes gracefully like Portrait of a Woman painted between 1570-80 depicting Anna Jagellonia, Queen of Poland, this old couple remains steadfastly devoted to one another. Their love is akin to the Adoration of the Shepherds portrayed on an oil-on-wood masterpiece dating back to around 1500 - pure and timeless. Through every stroke on canvas or engraving etched into history books, these hints capture fragments of their extraordinary journey together – an ode to true companionship that transcends time itself.
