The Sleeping Gypsy is a dream-like painting by the French painter Henri Rousseau. The painting depicts a lion in the foreground, standing over a sleeping gypsy woman resting beneath what appears to be a flowering tree, surrounded by an array of exotic plants and animals. The painting has been described as “an image of Africa infiltrated with fantasy romance”, and there has been much speculation over the symbolism behind it. Some people believe that the work is meant to represent our own inner selves; the dreaming woman may symbolize a part of ourselves that we are trying to explore and understand, while the lion could represent both protectiveness and strength. Others have suggested more obvious interpretations like protection, restfulness, innocence or even death. No matter what interpretation you choose, The Sleeping Gypsy displays Rousseau's unique approach to art and is sure to capture your interest and imagination.
