About This Item


This is one of a series of travel bugs made to recognize paintings seen, and admired by the bug owner. A digital copy of this painting was downloaded from the internet. The copy was reduced in size and proportions cropped to accommodate the laminating materials available to the owner. Regrettably these processes diminish the effort of the artist. One truly must see the original in person to fully appreciate the work. The text below is a mixture of my own observations and material gleaned from the internet (mostly Wikipedia and Web Gallery).

Jean-Baptiste Édouard Detaille (1848-1912), was a French academic painter and military artist noted for his precision and realistic detail. He was an accomplished painter before he enlisted in the Army for the Franco-Prussian war.  He later came to be regarded as the "semi-official artist of the French army."   This painting, done 1888, is titled The Dream (in French, Le Rêve); it was seen in the Musee D'Orsay in October 2012.  The canvas is huge and shows soldiers asleep on a battlefield dreaming of military glory.
