Young Woman asleep in a Hammock

1775 - 1778. Oil on copperplate Room 093

The hammock suggests a tropical setting, possibly Puerto Rico where Paret lived between 1775 and 1778 after he was banished by Charles III. The sumptuous curtain evokes a dream-like space, while the vase of roses and the handkerchief in the young woman`s hand refer to love, tears and the sadness of abandonment. The subject of a woman in a hammock would become popular in the nineteenth century.
