The Sleeping Gypsy by Henri Rousseau - Famous Art - Handmade Oil Painting on Canvas


There is something dreamy and magical about the works of the French artist Henri Rousseau. This feeling is best depicted in this fantastic painting called The Sleeping Gypsy. The style falls within The Naïve movement, though it is weaved with a sense of the “surreal.” As the artist himself described, the painting is about a wandering Negress in deep sleep, overcome by fatigue and thirst. Beside her lies a jar and a mandolin. A lion happens to pass by but does not devour her. At the backdrop is the bluish night sky and a dreamy full moon. The whole thing gives a very poetic effect.
