Sleeping (Degas)

This will be one of my upcoming Sw!pe Magazine submission.  They are asking for museum specific pieces for the next issue, so I thought I would show a subject I witness day in day out.  So many people come to the museum after flying great distances, or they just get over stimulated, at least those are the reasons I would like to believe in which someone would fall asleep at a museum.  Some people may just be plain bored, but this is something I see most days as I work.  There is also something brilliantly honest about a man sleeping next to historically important artwork.  No matter how much money or fame a piece can have, some people just don't think it's important.  I love that so much.
