A to Z Challenge: K is for Klimt’s The Kiss

Klimt The KissI’ve always loved this painting. I love the simple lines, the colors, and above all the intimacy depicted here. I love how the woman takes center stage without being a madonna, whore or femme fatale. She is simply embraced and kissed for who she is. I also love the way he holds her face as he kisses her. I’ve always been in awe of the intimacy of this picture. I feel like I’m interrupting an extremely private moment. I think that’s the true power of this painting: the fact that you feel like your intruding on a private moment between a couple that no one else should be privy to.

  1. Expressions on the face of the lady…smeared with bliss is something that I can not let my eyes off! And this painting never crosses the modesty limits to wander off in lustful ways. Isn’t it that the one who created this masterpiece had a divine gift?

  2. I had the privilege to see this painting at the Belvedere Palace in Vienna and it is breathtaking because it actually glitters and shimmers in gold. It is quite beautiful
