"Closed Eyes" is a portrait of painter Odilon Redon's wife, Camille Falte, and includes themes often found in the artist's work, such as a person's inner world and dreams.
The watery style gives an ethereal feel to this image, influenced by 15th-century Italian Renaissance busts and Michelangelo's "Dying Slave" sculpture, which the painter was upset by when he saw it at the Louvre.
