Venus Asleep Of Paul Delvaux Paul Delvaux 1897-1994 Venus Asleep 1 What Does the art work look like describe it This piece of art work in my opinion looks like a dream The art work has a certain disoriented charm It has mainly all dark colors and uses these dark colors to contrast with the light skin pigment of the people in the painting The painting has a calm erotic nude lady sleeping on a very formal looking couch or day bed If the picture is read as this ladies dream then it appears as if she were dreaming of death or something of a cult like manner If it is indeed death she is dreaming of then she is symbolizing that death is very calm and relaxed for her leg has gone limp as if she is very relaxed as death the skeleton is hovering over the foot end of her bed In the background there are also people flying up in the sky and these people could symbolize the dead rising to a heaven or a god or even angels attempting to help the dying on there way to a heaven or a god It also seams as if the people in this dream are in a place of worship and they are all looking up to the skies and praying The structures around them are very temple like for they have many statues and engravings about them There is one lady in close and she is not praying and looks very formal This lady is looking right at the skeleton which symbolizes death This lady could symbolize a priest that is conversationalizing with her god or death itself or this lady could also symbolize a non-believer that only examines the cult or religion and passes judgment Another major aspect of this painting is that it is all set at night which only makes the viewer believe more that the painting is set
