The Sleeping Gypsy is a large oil on Canvas painted by Henri Rousseau in 1897. Rousseau was a French artist born in 1844. He excelled in drawing and music and won prizes in school. After a short career working for a lawyer, he joined the army. After serving 4 years, he moved to Paris where he married and worked as a tax collector. It wasn't until he was in his 40's that he began exhibiting in the Salon des Ind├ępendants. Regarded as a Self Taught artist, Rousseau worked in a primitive style which was admired by other post impressionists and Surrealists at the time including Pablo Picasso.

The Sleeping Gypsy was a large painting done in 1897. Rousseau described his painting as follows: "A wandering Negress, a mandolin player, lies with her jar beside her (a vase with drinking water), overcome by fatigue in a deep sleep. A lion chances to pass by, picks up her scent yet does not devour her. There is a moonlight effect, very poetic." This painting is currently located in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
