Paula Arciniega's 'Beim Schlafengehen,' a mesmerizing painting inspired by R. Strauss' 'Four Last Songs.' Immerse in the tranquility and poetic beauty echoing Hermann Hesse's words.

“Now that I am wearied of the day, I will let the friendly, starry night greet all my ardent desires like a sleepy child. Hands, stop all your work. Brow, forget all your thinking. All my senses now yearn to sink into slumber. And my unfettered soul wishes to soar up freely into night’s magic sphere to live there deeply and thousandfold.”    ~ Hermann Hesse
