The Sleeping Gypsy, 1897

The Sleeping Gypsy, 1897

Henri Rousseau

This is probably Rousseau’s most unusual and exotic work. A gypsy sleeps in the desert under a brilliant white moon while a lion gently sniffs at her. The lack of perspective gives this painting a naïve quality, and its flat characters seem out of scale (the woman is much too large compared to the size of the lion). However, the imagination of the viewer in captured by this painting. Many explanations have been offered for the juxtaposition of the sleeping woman and the lion. Is the wild animal part of the woman’s dream? Does the painting symbolize the conflict between peace and violence?

Painting`s original is located at Museum of Modern Art, New York.

The painting will be delivered unstreched, rolled in protective & presentable case.
