Additional information on the original artwork by the museum's website (© - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

This powerful and haunting picture is among the ambitious Symbolist compositions that established Hodler’s fame in Europe around 1900, on a par with Edvard Munch and Gustav Klimt. When the painting was first shown during the Swiss national exhibition in Geneva in 1896, critics detected an ironic edge, perhaps because of its venue: a theater associated with the satirical journal Le Sapajou. Hodler’s suggestive vision of naked women may have been a rejoinder to officials who objected to the display of his painting The Night (1889–90; Kunstmuseum Bern), finding its seminude, male and female figures excessively erotic.

In the year 1896 Ferdinand Hodler made the modern art artwork called "The Dream of the Shepherd (The Dream of the Shepherd)". The original was made with the size - 98 1/2 × 51 3/8 in (250,2 × 130,5 cm) and was painted with the technique of oil on canvas. This artwork is part of the art collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is one of the world's largest and finest art museums, which includes more than two million works of art spanning five thousand years of world culture, from prehistory to the present and from every part of the globe..
