Title Italian: Venere dormiente
Sleeping Venus
Español: Venus dormida.
Türkçe: Uyuyan Venüs (Dresden Venüsü olarak da bilinir), İtalyan Rönesans dönemi ressamı Giorgione'nin tablosudur. Tablonun, Giorgione'nin 1510'daki vefatından sonra bir diğer rönesans ressamı olan Titian tarafından tamamlandığına inanılır. Resim şu anda Almanya'nın Dresden kentindeki Gemäldegalerie'de sergilenmektedir.
Although nude figures (such as Botticelli's "Birth of Venus") had been painted before this one, this is probably the first nude to show a figure simply as a depiction of a nude. It is named "Venus" but has no traditional attributes (such as Cupid) to indicate that it represents a goddess. It was a break from tradition, and set a new subject for the artist, resulting in 20th century works such as the nudes of Francis Bacon and Henry Moore. wikidata:Q500812
