  • Title: Auguste Rodin - The Kiss - Mouseion Collection

  • Materials: Polystone composite

    The kiss sculpture inspired by the work of artist Auguste Rodin (1840-1917). Rodin's life as sculptor was long characterized by the mixed reactions that drew his work to the audience. He felt little for the strict formulas of romance and did not want to identify with the neutrality of the impressionists. Rodin's oeuvre is therefore characterized by a passion for the human body. The final image of the kiss gives a different impression, not one of despair but of happiness and unconstrained love. The image is very sensual but radiates a certain amount of sweetness. The kiss was sent in 1893 by the French government for participation in the World Columbian Fair in Chicago, but the US authorities found the image too bold for a public show.( weight 3.7kg) Packaged carefully and sent by registered transport, including original storage box and certificate.
