Kiss is a square painting, showing a pair of lovers embracing each other, their bodies wrapped together by robes. This way of expression was influenced by the new art movement and the art and crafts movement at the same time. Gustav Klim covered the traditional oil paintings with gold foil, which made the modern sense of the paintings more prominent，Kiss is currently collected in the Austrian Museum of Fine Arts in Vienna, and is widely regarded as a classic in the early 20th century. Kiss is the representative work of symbolism and the most popular work of Gustav Klim.
Gustav Klim received a lot of praise after finishing the kiss, and immediately found the buyer. Klim was 45 years old when he created the painting. At that time, he was still living with his mother and two unmarried sisters. After he became famous, Klim had affairs with some women. He had at least three illegitimate children. Kiss symbolizes his sexual charm, and the overall structure obviously has the meaning of phallus worship. The reason why this painting is famous is that the delicate women in the painting are tightly entwined by geometric figures, and the colors and details on the body make Klim's life abstract and outstanding. She is not only the embodiment of desire, but also the leader of love.
The two people in the picture stand on the edge of the patch. Men wear robes with irregular black and white rectangles, and use gold foil to decorate the spiral posture. Men wear a crown of vines, while women wear tight jumpsuits, embellished with flower like round or oval patterns parallel to the wavy lines of the background. Her hair is decorated with flowers, and it's trendy and curly up. Her hair is like a halo that highlights her face, and a necklace of flowers can be seen under her chin.
This is a decorative mural, which is also a well received masterpiece of art. A large number of decorative elements such as gold and silver foil are used in the painting, which makes the picture look bright and golden. In this golden background, a pair of lovers in full bloom on the soft grass, warm kiss. The man's hands gently and lovingly lifted the woman's head and was passionately kissing her face. A woman's left hand holds a man's right hand, eyes closed, immersed in endless happiness and romantic imagination. The black hair and dark skin of the man in the painting highlight the strong and masculine of the man, while the white skin and ruddy lips of the woman show her tenderness and beauty. Men and women are full of all kinds of patterns, in addition to women have a complete body curve, men are completely surrounded by these patterns. And these rectangular, spiral, circular patterns have a strong decorative effect, but also full of mysterious symbolic significance.
"Kiss" is the juncture of Taoist Taiji, the solution and release of contradictions, and the basic element of life theme.
