Chien Chiu Hsiung CC 1.2 Intro. Art Professor Gerspacher April 21, 2010 The Sleeping Gypsy also known as “La Bohémienne Endormie” in French was painted by Henri Rousseau during 1897. The painting is about 51” x 6’7” and Rousseau used oil on the canvas. When I went to the MoMA and I looked at this painting in person, I saw the image of a black woman sleeping on the desert sand. Beside the woman, there are a mandolin and a jar. While she sleeps, she is holding a walking stick with right her hand. Also, there is a blanket underneath her body. The lion in the middle of the painting is standing and seems very curious and smells the woman. Seeing at this painting in person is very different from the picture found on the internet because it is hard to see the details of this painting on the computer screen compare to actually going to the MoMA and seeing it up close. When I went to see this painting, I was surprised about the size of the painting because it was wider and much taller than I anticipated. I brought a copy of this painting with me that day
