A Dream by Peter Mitchev

Artwork Description

Have you ever heard or even said, "I was in the arms of Morpheus"? Son of Nyx, goddess of the night, Morpheus was a winged creature capable of adopting a human form and appearing in the dreams of mortals. However, Aristotle was the one who first associated dreams with the mind. 

Following that idea, more than two thousand years later, Sigmund Freud wrote a whole theory about the interpretation of dreams as the only medium to have some access to our unconscious. So, these messages were sent through symbols we could analyze.

Freud's theories became a relevant way to understand how our mind works, but it was Surrealism that explored the depths of the human psyche and exploited it to create art. Surrealists used the techniques of psychoanalysis to create a more powerful and authentic form of art. For these artists, the brush (or the pen, in the case of surreal writers) became the media to express their subconscious ideas.

That was also used artists from the Symbolism movement. They often used the dream as a symbol or a purpose to express all kinds of images that are not part of the real life.

Here, the artist Peter Mitchev expressed the peace in the human life by the beauty of a woman in a green scarf, immersed in a romantic dream, as an almost surreal and magical image.

This is one of the most peaceful and beautiful artworks of the artist Peter Mitchev. One of the most creative, experimental, and controversial artists on the contemporary art scene, the works of Peter Mitchev are dominated by the themes of sexuality, love, and unity. His works are symbolic and very close to the Vienna secession art movement and one of his creators Gustav Klimt.

This amazingly gentle and elegant artwork is available and you can admire its perfection in your collection if you buy it directly here, from the ArtWizard Platform. The artwork is sold with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist. The painting is beautifully framed and ready to hang.
