    An Old Woman with Rosary by Cezanne 1895-96 (National Gallery, London)

    Not what you were expecting to see, but it's worth a moment of reflection because of the
    simplicity of the subject matter.  The humble nature and pose of the woman, stooped in
    concentration.  A woman who has outlived her family and can no longer love and care for the
    children she brought into the world and nurtured.  The hands grasping the Rosary say it all.
