Every picture tells a story: artistic themes through the ages
Focuses mainly on depictions of sleeping women--clothed, partially bare, and totally nude--in paintings, sculptures, 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 entantglement 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.
Series devised by Alain Bergala ; series producer, Dominique Gibrail.
