Dreaming at the MoMA

The painting is horizontal structure, and the subject matter is butterflies. I see round shapes in butterflies, flowers, and rocks. There are horizontal lines between water and the rocks. I also can see triangle shapes between butterflies. Different values of blue colors are most prominent. It is light in the sky and dark in the water. I also can see yellow and red colors. My eyes are led around the light blue sky which takes up 2/3 of the canvas, and then my eyes go straight to the big yellow butterfly, then the light yellow flower next to it, then the purple butterfly, then the little yellow and red butterfly, and then the red flowers. In next, I see the rock that is out of the water and then the side of the bee on the left.
The scene for this painting takes place at night, under a bright, star-lit sky. The colors for the village and countryside are mostly muted shades of blue, with dark green. This is balanced by the brighter colors of the sky. The tall, tower-like foliage in the foreground gives a nice depth and contrast and is echoed and balanced by the church steeple in the distance. The soft, warm lights of the village homes are echoed in the stars above. The entire painting is made up of swirls and lines, giving the impression of movement and flow, almost like an ocean of energy. The energy flowing in the sky is mirrored in the flowing hills and countryside. Overall this piece has a dreamy, flowing quality about it.
The Dream is dated 1910 and is oil on canvas landscape. This work is comprised of a simple color palette of green, blue, red, yellow, orange, pink, white and black. Even with the bright colors, the painting is mostly muted with pops of brightness, from the reclining figure on the left, the moon at the top right, and the patch of mother-in-law tongues in the lower right corner – three points of brightness drawing your eye from left to right and then back left again in a triangular pattern. The main subject of the painting is the landscape itself, but the nude woman reclining on a couch in the forest, is your tour-guide. Lotus blooms surround her, and there are birds hidden within the trees. Directly above her index finger an elephant hides in the trees, continuing right you’ll see the native playing a horn, the lightness of the horn, catching your eye first, and then, dragging you down to the tigers.

A nude female is portrayed as a subject. One third of the canvas is the woman’s figure. The value is moderate, but the painting colors are vivid with rainbow colors. Her feet stretch diagonally to cross the picture. While the background is colorful, the color of the figure is monotonous so the figure stands out by the contrast. Fresh fruits, brilliant pink flowers and trees decorate the woman’s attraction.
