Imagine a woman waiting daily if her sweetheart may come back from the fields. Guess she don't want to be remembered over and over again as she KNOWS that there is war. So she will look at a picture like this, dreaming of better times. People needs idyll in hard times and there is an industry that mirrors that dreams. This picture symbols the hope for better times.
Easier to understand this way?
