The Kiss (in German Der Kuss) is an oil-on-canvas painting with added gold leaf, silver and platinum by the Austrian Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt. It was painted at some point in 1907 and 1908, during the height of what scholars call his "Golden Period". It was exhibited in 1908 under the title Liebespaar (the lovers) as stated in the catalogue of the exhibition.
The post-Victorian society of the early 1900s perceived "The Kiss" as pornographic, even though both figures are fully robed.
✨ Gustav Klimt Quotes:
"Truth is like fire; to tell the truth means to glow and burn."
"I have the gift of neither the spoken nor the written word, especially if I have to say something about myself or my work."
"All art is erotic."
