The original work is dated 1910 and is kept at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, USA. Rousseau writes a poem to accompany it: "Yadwigha in a beautiful dream-Having fallen gently to sleep-Heard the sounds of a reed instrument-Played by a well-intentioned [snake] charmer.-As the moon reflected-On the rivers [or flowers], the verdant trees,-The wild snakes lend an ear-To the joyous tunes of the instrument". In "The dream", in the foreground, a naked woman named Yadwigha is lying on a sofa; she is a Polish model beloved by Rousseau in his youth. She is surrounded by a tropical landscape: plants, flowers and fierce animals. Yadwigha's attention is captured by a snake charmer, who is busy playing a melody with his flute. At the same time an orange snake crawls in the forest, moving away from the man. Even the animals are intrigued and interested by the sound emitted by the enchanter: two lions and two monkeys admire him; an exotic bird turns to look at him and an elephant raises its proboscis towards the sky. The elements are in sharp contrast to each other: on one side a chimeric jungle and on the other a woman relaxed on a sofa, the only realistic subject of the work. Through this contrast Rousseau tries to make us enter the dream. The painting follows the naive style of the artist: bright colours and shapes with cut out contours give us the idea of ​​being immersed in a fairy-tale, surreal and sometimes mysterious environment. A genius artist with an unmistakable style, Rousseau painted the jungle without ever having seen it, relying on a description found in a book.
