Lost Illusions1865-67 (oil on canvas)

Charles Gleyre (Swiss, 1806-1874)

Gleyre claimed that “Lost Illusions” represented a vision that he had experienced on the evening of March 1, 1835, while sitting on the banks of the Nile River near Abydos, Egypt. An aging poet watches pensively as a mysterious boat carries away his youthful dreams and illusions, personified by music-making maidens and a cupid strewing flowers. Although the figures in the painting wear classical Greek dress, their vessel resembles a “Dahabeah,” an Egyptian river boat.
