Saw this image on FB, not sure of its origins, but am very conflicted about it. The image is clear and beautiful. However, I’m torn between wanting the piano player to stop piano, get his act together, and pay attention to this very pretty woman asleep on him. On the other hand, he’s so into his music, which is kind of inspiring, if terrifying, to think that someone would get so lost in their art that Sleeping Naked Woman wouldn’t even distract him. Is this kind of concentration necessary? Or, is Sleeping Naked Woman happy to have the piano guy playing music for her, or at least in her presence? Is this some kind of weird Manet Dejeuner Sur l’Herbe thing? Conflicted thoughts about this. Discuss?

For comparison and consideration, the Manet:

If anybody knows about the piano pic, please let us know. Very curious and wish I knew where it came from. . .(the FB poster couldn’t remember where he got it, either).
