The painting Sleep (1928) is a dreamlike representation
of tropical landscape, with this major motif of her repetitive
figure that disappears in the background.
This painting is an example of Tarsila’s venture into surrealism. Elements such as repetition, random association, and dreamlike figures are typical of surrealism that we can see as main elements of this composition. She was never a truly surrealist painter, but she was totally aware of surrealism’s legacy.
