The Kiss is a curious and elegant synthesis of Symbolism and Art Nouveau.
Klimt's synthesis of diverse sources created art with both individuality and extreme elegance. The primal forces of sexuality, regeneration, love, and death form the dominant themes of Klimt's work. A man leaning over and kissing a kneeling woman, all shrouded in symbolically patterned gold with a bed of flowers below them. The Kiss is a fascinating icon of the loss of self that lovers experience. Only the faces and hands of this couple are visible; all the rest is great swirl of gold, studded with colored rectangles as if to express visually the emotion of love.
This piece includes a sculpted frame with gentle engravings designed to emphasize the art. The frame also includes a wooden liner with a subtle filet. The frame color is black with a rich antique gold as an accent and the wood liner.
