Las rinde el sueño[1] (Comforted by sleep) is an etching made by the Spanish painter and printmaker Francisco Goya, plate #34 in the series Los Caprichos.

Four women sleeping in a prison. Light streams through an iron grating. " Do not wake them. Sleep is often the single happiness of the unhappy " (Goya). Charles Yriarte remarks that this is the only calm and consoling phrase to be found in Goya. --Hugh Stokes
