Le Réveil

Le Réveil (Awakening) c1830-31 by French Painter Aimée Brune-Pagès (1803 – 1866); one of the most respected female French painters.

This is a beautiful portrait of an attractive young lady in her bed awakening to the morning light, in a white lace pajama, red hair ribbon, and lace hair net holding an open book in her right hand and resting the left side of her face on her left hand.

She is propped up against the headboard of her bed by a very, very large white pillow and has a white sheet across her legs as well as multi-colored bedspread around her back and over her right arm.

Toward the front of the scene and over her legs is a large embroidered emerald green bed curtain that frames ones view onto the young lady.
