Here the male lesbian sleeps within the exorbitant whirlwind of a bacchanalian dream. He is Tannhauser asleep in the cave of Venusberg. To the left are Venus, Cupid and the Three Graces, to the right a procession of satyrs and bacchantes. A tear glistens on Tannhauser’s cheek. The colour of the picture is the silver alchemical element, mercury.
