Rodin The Kiss Mini Sculpture from The Met Museum


Like his famous The Thinker, The Kiss is taken from The Gates of Hell, Auguste Rodin’s (French, 1840-1917) magnum opus. It was originally based on the figures Paolo and Francesca from Dante’s Inferno, who were banished to Hell for eternity because they kissed after Francesca had married Paolo’s brother. Sensual but also radiating a deep and sincere love, The Kiss, recalled by this resin mini sculpture, has remained one of Rodin’s most popular works to this day.
