Our brooch was inspired by "The Kiss", by Gustav Klimt, Austrian, 1862-1918. Original image on left.
"The Kiss" is Klimt's most celebrated painting. It portrays a couple locked in an embrace on the edge of a flower stem. The man's robe with its rectangular ornamentation, and the woman's dress decorated with softly flowing lines and boldly colored blossoms, represent the different principles that merge in the kiss.
24 Karat gold-plate over pewter.
