Five endearing kisses in art history


The Kiss It is an expression of affection between the couple, as usual or strange as each person.

Perhaps that is why, different artists throughout history have represented this encounter from their own perspective.

Leaving proof of their expertise, but beyond the way they conceive one of the most endearing samples of love for humanity.

Klimt's Kiss (1907-1908)

It is perhaps one of the most famous paintings not only of the artist but of all time.

It was the first installment of what would be called its golden period.

It clearly shows the influence of Byzantine art. Some critics have pointed out that it is a self-portrait of Klimt and Emilie Flöge.


August Rodin's Kiss (1882)

A piece that demonstrates Rodin's mastery in terms of sculpture.

Made in marble shows the story of Paolo and Francesca, characters from the Divine Comedy in which he was inevitably inspired.

The sensuality is evident, while the details allow the structure to be extremely dynamic.

Psyche revived by the kiss of love of Antonio Canova (1787 and 1793)

The impressive marble sculpture that today is located in the Louvre Museum in Paris is stunningly beautiful.

There they appear Cupid and Psyche On the edge of the kiss, there is no doubt that it is one of the most relevant examples of the neoclassical artist.


The lovers of René Magritte (1928)

Margitte's mother committed suicide in a river, when he was only 14 years old.

The image was so impressive that years later I would reproduce it in a certain way in this painting.

The surrealist shaped a couple covered by a wet cloth in an encounter that seems distressing and cathartic.

The birthday of Marc Chagall (1915)

The French painter portrayed himself and his fiance Bella, a few months after getting married.

Happiness is so much that it allows lovers to float.

Colors are a fundamental element and the red floor is an ingredient that makes the work unique.
