Women Dreaming, Dreaming...

Julius Troschel: Ruhende. 1860
Sleeping Nymph, c. 1535
Alexandre Schoenewerk: La jeune Tarantine, 1871
Wikimedia Commons has a fascinating page of sleeping women in art. I can think of a few more images to add - paintings by Balthus, for instance. I have even painted some sleeping women myself. It's one of my favorite things to paint! I chose a few sculptures to post here.
Thanks again to Internet Weekly for the heads up!
