The extraordinary composition and brash colors of circa 1915 "Sleepy Heads" anticipate the psychedelic world of 1960s Pop Art. Dominating the composition are a group of four sleepy blue birds resting comfortably on a tree branch - the backdrop of an extraordinary full and orange and bright moon lighting their world.
