‘The Dream’ is a painting in oil on wood, by Award winning artist André Romijn, inspired by a black & white photo from 1910 made by one of the first professional female photographers in the USA, Imogen Cunningham.
Imogen Cunningham (1883-1976) was a pioneer of 20th-century photography, an artist whose work significantly contributed to the acceptance of the medium as an art form. She devoted her life to her craft and photographed continuously and passionately for over 70 years. Her images of the body explore the human form in great detail: eyes, ears, heads, hands, breasts, feet. Many of her images have become well-known and popular icons in the history of photography.
