The Sleep of Trees
Preparatory Sketch 3
The crudest of sketches, this image nevertheless narrows the content down to the essentials. The exterior spiral, the interior room, the sleeping woman, and the sleepless man. The notes want the male figure upside-down, which you will see relates to a figure in the midnight hour. The red ‘passion’ blanket that presses through the evening hours will morph in the next hour, but relates this piece to Champagne, as does the boat (see the little painting on the wall) outside the window. The spiral form coalesces at midnight, and the content laden striped sheet will clothe a man.
