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.
