When you fall asleep during your work… Resting by the Easel

When you fall asleep during your work… Resting by the Easel (1890) was painted by the Swedish artist Emma Sparre (1851-1913). It looks like one of those moments that you are trying hard to focus, but the body is just not cooperating. And whereas for many jobs it would not be great to fall asleep in the middle, an artist could justify this as a way to get inspiration. Sparre came from a very artistic family, with several painters and musicians. She married the history painter Baron Carl Axel Ambjörn Sparre (1839-1910), and they traveled across Europe. And like many artists with ambition during that day (and explained in my previous post), she studied for some time in Paris. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FineArts #ArtoftheDay #SwedishArt #SwedishArtist #SwedishPainter #Sparre #FemaleArtist #FemalePainter #Artist #Sleeping #Sleep #Asleep
