Le Baiser, de Rodin à nos jours

A symbol of amorous passion, of maternal love but also of transgression or death, the kiss occupies a unique place in art history. Indeed, since Antiquity it has been one of the most frequently depicted themes but also the most fantasised, aestheticised and banalised.

 

Conceived as a homage to the great master of sculpture, the exhibition «The Kiss: from Rodin to the present day» explores the evolution of this theme in art, from Rodin’s creation of The Kiss in 1882 up to the twenty-first century, looking at the creations of some forty international artists.
