The Kiss (original Der Kuss) was painted by Gustav Klimt, and is probably his most famous work. It depicts a couple shrouded in gold and symbols sharing a kiss against a bland background.

This piece, painted in 1908, is on display at the Austrian Gallery in the Belvedere Palace, Vienna.

The Kiss is my favorite portrait painted, and I'd got the re-production oil painted@home by www.pop-gallery.com

When kissed it seemed as if indeed imbibe each other, as if each were wine to the other's Thirst, the spirit rushed together at the touch of the lips -Robert Speaight, the Unbroken Heart-
