About The Kiss

  • The Kiss is one of the world's most recognized artworks. Painted between 1907 and 1908, it depicts a couple melting into a passionate embrace, their bodies entwined in beautifully elaborate robes.
  • The Kiss is the final painting of Klimt's Golden Period. The painting wasn’t even finished before it was purchased by the Austrian government. It is considered a national treasure.
  • Influenced by Japanese mosaics, the painting showcases the artist's signature gold leaf technique inspired by Byzantine mosaics in the Church of San Vitale in Italy.
  • No one knows the identity of the man in The Kiss: he may be Gustav Klimt himself, however it is only conjecture. There is no evidence to prove this.
