Rousseau "the sleeping gypsy"

The reason why I chose this specific picture was due to the vivid moon in the background. Additionally, there are the vivid colors on the gypsy, that create a subtle contrast between her and the rest of the picture. I also, like the story behind the picture, the gypsy falls asleep out of exhaustion, and the wandering lion catches her sent, and chooses not to devour her.
