This academic work entitled "Night" was painted as an oil-on-canvas by William-Adolphe Bouguereau in 1883.

This painting features one of the most repeated motifs from the artist's career, a woman, usually representing a mythological goddess, floating in the air with various elements. In this paticular case, it depics Nix, the Greek goddess of the night (see Wikipedia). Another example of a composition in the same style is the painting "The Dawn".

It is currently found in the collection of Hillwood Museum and Gardens in Washington DC, United States.
