Hand on hand: Mitterrand, Cahun

There is this interesting discussion on "Touch" by Raphaël Enthoven, where he talks about feeling the touch of one hand on the other as different from the hand being touched, although both hands belong to the same person. He uses the example of François Mitterrand, which reminds me of this picture by another French, Claude Cahun.

Claude Cahun, Sans titre (1936)
