Noon: Rest from Work (after Jean-François Millet), 1890

Vincent van Gogh

There are more well-known paintings depicting sleeping women than men in the annals of art history, but, as Kryger reminded me, there are also far more famed paintings of women than men in general. Some works, however, like Vincent van Gogh’s “Noon: Rest from Work,” show a man at rest, framing sleep as the sweet reprieve from a long day’s work. (
