The Siesta is a post-impressionist oil on canvas created by Paul Gauguin from 1892 to 1894. It lives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, a gift from the Leonore Annenberg Collection in 1993. The image is in the public domain. Gauguin’s portraits of Tahitian women and everyday Polynesian life were inspired during his time in Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands.

The painting depicts women laying on a roofed-over veranda and the shaded grass amid the warmth of the day. One of them is ironing while the others are doing nothing. They are all local women, however their apparel is European, baggy mission dresses or brightly printed textures. This painting depicts the communal ease and the unaffected grace of the Tahitian women that impressed Paul Gauguin enormously.
