Onlookers claim a ‘time traveler’ woman held an iPhone in a 150-year-old painting – but experts have a simple answer

ART fans were left stunned after spotting a woman holding an iPhone in a 150-year-old painting, calling the muse a “time traveler”.

But experts have a simple answer to the bizarre feature in Ferdinand George Waldmuller’s stunning creation, titled The Expected One.

In the 150-year-old painting, the woman appears to be holding an iPhone

The pretty painting shows a young woman walking through the idyllic landscape holding what looks suspiciously like a smartphone.

Her gaze lingers on the object in her hands while a boy in love waits to give her a pink flower.

Despite the lack of technology in 1860, eagle-eyed art lovers claim the woman is walking while scrolling an iPhone.

But art critics have dismissed the suggestion, insisting there’s a simple explanation behind it.

The woman is said to read a prayer book while walking through the countryside – instead of surfing social media.

Waldmüller’s incredible work is now in a Munich museum, the Neue Pinakothek, where the halls are lined with paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries.

The man who first sparked the conspiracy, Peter Russell, told VICE the discussion shows how much society has changed over the years.

He explained: “What impresses me the most is how much a technological change has changed the interpretation of the painting and in some ways exploited its entire context.

“The great change is that in 1850 or 1860 any single viewer would have identified the object the girl is engrossed in as a hymnal or a prayer book.

“Today, no one can fail to see the resemblance to the scene of a teenage girl engrossed in social media on her smartphone.”

But it’s not the first time modern technology has allegedly been discovered in a centuries-old painting.

Apple CEO Tim Cook claimed he noticed an iPhone in a piece of art while visiting a museum in Amsterdam.

The 350-year-old painting shows a man clutching a rectangular object while a woman, child and dog look on.

Cook previously said at a conference, “I always thought I knew when the iPhone was invented, but now I’m not so sure.”

The tech giant first released the iPhone in 2007.
