Lot Essay

This is a reduced version of Girodet's celebrated The Sleep of Endymion (Paris, Louvre), inscribed at upper left by the admirer who painted it. Girodet presented his masterpiece in the 1802 Paris Salon, where it was lauded by contemporary critics for its originality, strangeness, and poetic qualities.
