Sleeping Women In Art

This is an interesting set paintings from Wikimedia Commons.  With the exception of Fuseli, these images are very peaceful and serene.  Here are my favorites.


Giorgione - Venus Sleeping (1508-10)


John Vanderlyn - The Sleeping Ariadne on Naxos (1808-12)


Gustave Courbet - Le Sommeil [Sleep] (1866)


John Henry Fuseli - The Nightmare (1781)


Christian Krohg - Trett (1885)
