More information

This explicit dream image can be situated somewhere between Surrealism and Magic Realism. It shows a pale woman with a pillow surrounded by strange objects. The painting may be given an erotic interpretation. The subject clearly fascinated Koch as he made several versions of the painting, but none of them provides a definitive explanation of its meaning.
