      Painted in 1919, I'm not sure if this may be a little "nostalgic" for 1909.

      The purity and innocence of cuddling on the couch with your sweetheart. Back in the days when midnight was an un-Godly hour. They could've been my parents.

      You can almost see the next scene happening in real time: The young man removes the handkerchief from his jacket pocket and nervously wipes the sweat from his brow, just as the cuckoo-clock announces the stroke of midnight!
