Edvard Munch | The Kiss, 1897

The Kiss is an oil painting on canvas completed by the Norwegian symbolist artist Edvard Munch in 1897.
Part of his Frieze of Life, which depicts the stages of a relationship between men and women, The Kiss is a realization of a motif with which he had experimented since 1888/89: a couple kissing, their faces fusing as one in a symbolic representation of their unity.
Exhibited as early as 1903, this work is held at the Munch Museum in Oslo.
