Weight 1,2 kg

"The Kiss" is another iconic sculpture by the renowned French artist Auguste Rodin, famous for its portrayal of passionate love and intimacy. Here's an in-depth look at this famous artwork:

Origins: Like "The Thinker," "The Kiss" was initially conceived as part of Rodin's monumental project "The Gates of Hell," an ambitious work intended to depict scenes from Dante's "Divine Comedy." "The Kiss" was created around 1882 and represents the literary figures Paolo and Francesca, two lovers who were caught and killed by Francesca's husband in the throes of passion, as described in Dante's work.

Design: "The Kiss" features a nude couple, locked in a passionate embrace and kiss. Their bodies are melded together in a way that depicts both passion and tenderness. It's noteworthy that while their lips are almost touching, they do not actually kiss - a deliberate choice by Rodin to emphasize the moment of desire.

Material and Technique: The original sculpture was crafted in plaster, but the work has been reproduced in various materials, including bronze and marble. Rodin is known for his ability to manipulate materials like bronze and marble to appear soft and lifelike, a technique that is particularly evident in "The Kiss."

Reception and Criticism: The sculpture was initially criticized for its explicitness and portrayal of naked passion. Nonetheless, or perhaps because of this, "The Kiss" quickly became one of Rodin's most popular works and an icon of romantic love.

Influence and Legacy: "The Kiss" has had a significant impact on modern sculpture and the portrayal of emotion and intimacy in art. It remains a central piece in Rodin's oeuvre and a beloved subject in the broader art world.

Exhibitions: Like "The Thinker," "The Kiss" is displayed in museums and galleries around the world. One of the most famous marble versions is housed at the Musée Rodin in Paris.

"The Kiss" continues to stand as a significant symbol of love and passion in art, maintaining its fascination and relevance in contemporary culture.

As all of the bronze products in our shop, this exhibit is hand-cast in our own foundry and subject to our strict quality inspections throughout the entire process of fabrication. All of our sculptures are exclusively compounded with the help of lost-wax casting.

The famous artistFrançois-Auguste-René Rodin was born in Paris in 1840. He visited the École des Arts décoratifs after the Ecole nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Paris refused him to study there. François-Auguste-René Rodin travelled a lot and visited Rome and Florence and several places in France. Rodins art work was shown at the world exhibition in Paris in 1900 and he got many awards for his work. He is known as one of the most important artists ever and as progenitor and pioneer of the Modern Art sculpture. One of his most popular artwork was "The Gates of Hell", the entrance for the planned new Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris. He got his appointment in 1880 but never finished it. Some of his best known sculptures like "The Thinker" are single motives of this huge gate, which was cast in bronze after his death. Auguste Rodin died in the year 1917 in Meudon.
