The Day Dream

The Day Dream is an oil-on-canvas painting created by the English Pre-Raphaelite poet and artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti in 1880. His model was Jane Morris, with whom he had a complex relationship, and who "consumed and obsessed him in paint, poetry, and life". She is shown in this painting in a flowing green silk dress, surrounded by the dark, shady foliage of a sycamore tree. Her book forgotten, she is immersed in her daydreams, while a sprig of honeysuckle dangles from her fingers, perhaps as a token of love. The painting is in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
