Product Description:
Slumber Video. What is it about slumber that has beguiled artists and viewers alike, down through the centuries? This program focuses mainly on depictions of sleeping women-clothed, partially bared, and totally nude-in paintings, sculptures, engravings, art photos, and film, from the medieval period to mid-20th century. Topics include the latent eroticism and voyeurism inherent in such subject matter, symbolism such as entanglement in bedding, the use of veils as backdrops and of curtains as dividers, the concept of sleep as a form of betrayal, and the technical challenge of depicting a dreamer and a dream within the same artistic space. (27 minutes.) Art History, Art and Photography 2000.
