Leurs rêves: dix vernis mous en couleurs (In Their Dreams: Ten Soft Veneers in Colour ) is a series of typical Collot fantasy scenes, each framed by a ‘dream cloud’ and with a small image of the relevant sleeper in the corner. It is of course a good thing that most of them are only dreams and fantasies in Collot’s imagination.
The titles of the plates are:
1 La jeune fille (The Young Girl)
2 L’homme d’affaires (The Businessman)
3 Le chemineau (The Tramp)
4 Le mari (The Husband)
5 Le collegien (The Student)
6 Le sadique (The Sadist)
7 L’hysterique (The Hysteric)
8 La vieille fille (The Old Maid)
9 L’homo sexuel (The Sexual Man/Homosexual)
10 Le vieux (The Old Man)
Leurs rêves was privately published in a limited numbered edition of 100 copies.
