  1. to faint, to lose consciousness

Ariadne (1804) by Jean-Baptiste Greuze depicts a swooning woman, exemplary of passion in reverie. The swooning woman was first typified in Titian's Magdalenes.

Other swooning women include the depictions of Heloise as in Edmund Blair Leighton's Abaelard and his Pupil Heloise.

There are numerous paintings of women reading in passionate reverie.
