Two Dreams is the informal title of two illustrations by French artist Grandville published by Le Magasin pittoresque in July 1847. They were accompanied by a text by Grandville. Both the texts and the images were his last publications.

Crime et expiation[1][2]

"Crime et expiation" (Dream of Crime and Punishment) depicts eyes in the sky.

"Serait-ce les mille yeux de la foule attiree par le spectacle du supplice" [3]

On the image of the eye, see also Bataille's comment on Victor Hugo's poem "La Conscience," of which the eye was illustrated by François Chifflart.

Promenade dans le ciel

  • Promenade dans le ciel[4].
