The Dream of Raphael[1][2] is an engraving by Marcantonio Raimondi (c. 1480 - c. 1534).

"The figures based on some Giorgionesque original ; the fantastic and grotesque motives[3] reminiscent of Jerome Bosch." --Marcantonio and Italian Engravers and Etchers of Sixteenth Century, Arthur Mayger Hind
"two women lie sleeping in mirror image poses; [...] disturbing phallic creatures crawl out of the waters towards the dreamers." --Monsters of Our Own Making: The Peculiar Pleasures of Fear by Marina Warner
