The Art of KissingThe word “KISS” comes from the Old English word “cyssan,” No one really knows the origin of “cyssan” but it’s thought that it might represent the sound people make when they kiss.


JOHN W. MILLS British Sculptor
Bronze edition


Throughout the history of Art we are able to recall memories of master artists capturing the beautiful expression of THE KISS.

As a global organisation we want to study these forms in more detail, to understand the thoughts and influences that it may have had on the artists, in expressing their deep affection on the subject?

We welcome your comments and contribution on the story of The Art of KISSES, or if you as an artists where influence to use as a subject for your art?


Khajuraho Temple Kisses

The Story of Life & Love (INDIA)
Khajuraho Temples are among the most beautiful medieval monuments in the country. These temples were built by the Chandella ruler between AD 900 and 1130. It was the golden period of Chandella rulers. It is presumed that it was every Chandella ruler has built atleast one temple in his lifetime. So all Khajuraho Temples are not constructed by any single Chandella ruler but Temple building was a tradition of Chandella rulers and followed by almost all rulers of Chandella dynasty. Khajuraho is known for its ornate temples that are spectacular piece of human imagination, artistic creativity, magnificent architectural work and deriving spiritual peace through eroticism.

 Renaissance Kisses   Timeless piece

Around 1545, Agnolo Bronzino was commissioned to create a painting which has come to be known as Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time. In it mother and son appear on the verge of a sexual tryst: Cupid fondles his mother’s breast and kisses her on the lips. Suggestively, Venus’ legs appear to be slightly spread and her tongue is visible.

Agnolo di Cosimo (Italian November 17, 1503 – November 23, 1572), known as Bronzino. We witness the influence of Bronzino in the famous works by master artists Michelangelo in the sculpture of David and Leonardo da Vinci the painting of Mona Lisa. Oil on panel, 5 ft 1 in x 4 ft 8 3/4 in (In the collection of The London, National Gallery of Art)

Mughal Kisses

INDIA [1526-1707]
The artistic school of Mughal India was formed through the transmission of techniques both directly and indirectly by master artists of the royal Mughal atelier. After the death of Akbar, architect of the Mughal empire and active patron of the arts, his son Jahangir (r. 1605–27) ascended to the throne. As a prince, Jahangir had established his own atelier in Allahabad and had strong artistic tastes, preferring a single painter to work on an image rather than the collaborative method of Akbar’s time.

Neoclassical Kiss Antonio Canova Cupid Kiss2

Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss, 1787-1793

Italian sculptor, Antonio Canova (1757-1822) was a leading exponent of the neoclassic style, which dominated the arts in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Internationally famous, for his marble sculptures of delicate nudes. he was regarded as the most brilliant sculptor in Europe – was famous Working after the excesses of the Baroque style, he carved a niche for himself in the world of Neoclassical sculpture . Called ‘the supreme minister of beauty’ and ‘a unique and truly divine man’ by contemporaries.

His masterpiece of mythological love, in which the god Cupid awakens Psyche from unconsciousness, displays his typical elegance and sophistication – a conscious emulation of Greek and Roman examples in the age of the Enlightenment

Japanese art of kissing5

Edo Japan Kisses

From Poem of the Pillow, 1788
Kitagawa Nebsuyoshi (born 1753,Japan—died Oct. 31, 1806, Edo, Japan—d.) Japanese printmaker and painter who was one of the greatest artists of the ukiyo-e (“pictures of the floating world”) movement; he is known especially for his masterfully composed portraits of sensuous female beauties.
Eroticism was a fundamental theme of Japanese printmaking of the Edo period, and Utamaro Kitagawa concentrated specifically on depictions of love and sex in his art. This is one of the more chaste images from his overpowering Poem of the Pillow, a cycle of twelve prints of almost unparalleled sexual intensity. Later Western artists, notably Édouard Manet and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, turned to Japanese examples like this one for their own frank depictions of lovers and courtesans


Romanticism Kisses

Francesco Hayez (Italian, 1791-1882),
Il Bacio, 1867.
Oil on canvas.
46 5/8 x 34 7/8 in. (118.4 x 88.6 cm.) Estimate: $700,000-1,000,000. This work is offered in the 19th Century European Art sale on 25 April at Christie’s New York…

Il Bacio is of course even more passionate still, with the male figure caressing the woman’s face and holding the back of her head. Another difference from the painting of Romeo and Juliet is that Hayez imbues the work with political as well as social allegory. It can be read as a hymn to freedom and patriotic love, and as such this depiction went on to become a true icon of Italian painting.
Franceso Hayez was a popular Italian portraitist who also rendered historical and allegorical subjects.


Realistic  Kisses

Dimensions: 1.82 m x 1.12 m x 1.17 m
Owner: Musée Rodin
Location: Private collection
Created: 1882–1889
Media: Marble

Auguste Rodin’s Kiss in white marble of two naked figures embracing and captured in the motion of Kissing.  Naturalistic style was deemed quite outrageous and crude when first displayed. The couple in “The Kiss” are not idealized, classically nude figures; rather they are naked and openly sexual, although the couple’s lips do not actually meet.

“To any artist, worthy of the name, all in nature is beautiful, because his eyes, fearlessly accepting all exterior truth, read there, as in an open book, all the inner truth.”- Auguste Rodin.

Renoir going in for the kiss3

Impressionism Kisses

Artist: Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Period: Impressionism
Created: 1883
Genre: History painting
‘Dance at Bougival’ by Renoir depicts a couple dancing, he seemingly about to kiss her and she looking away, her mouth drooping. Renoir’s model was Suzanne Valadon, a famous artist in her own right, who had been dressmaker before becoming an acrobat and following a fall, an artists’ model. A muse and lover of Renoir’s, it is thought he depicted her with a drooping mouth as a comment on his on feeling regarding women: their role was either domestic, or providing inspiration for him.

“Why shouldn’t art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world.” – Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

Gustav Klimt The Kiss

Art Nouveau Kisses

Gustav Klimt (1862 -1918) One of his finest piece working in mix medium
The Kiss in 1907-8, — undoubtedly his most famous work and now a stalwart of undergraduate bedroom walls everywhere. A couple are depicted in gold leaf and embellished with coloured symbols.  Only their faces, hands and feet may be seen. A joyful and exuberant expression of sexual love, Klimt’s The Kiss is also a defining expression of decadence in turn-of the century Vienna.

 “Whoever wants to know something about me – as an artist which alone is significant – they should look attentively at my pictures and there seek to recognise what I am and what I want.”- Gustav Klimt.


Abstract Kisses

“What my work is aiming at is, above all, realism: I pursue the inner, hidden reality, the very essence of objects in their own intrinsic fundamental nature; this is my only deep preoccupation.”
Constantin Brâncuși (February 19, 1876 – March 16, 1957) was a Romanian sculptor, painter and photographer who made his career in France. Considered a pioneer of modernism. His simplified forms in his sculpture, subverting centuries of sculptural tradition, fusing both the influence of his classical training and his peasant background. His philosophy of expressing “the idea, the essence of things” drove his artistic conceptions, and his ‘The Kiss’ (1916).

Rene Magritte Kiss_Lovers2

Surreal Kisses

“The mind loves the unknown. It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown.”
René François Ghislain Magritte was a Belgian surrealist artist. He became well known for a number of witty and thought-provoking images….

Dimensions: 54 cm x 73 cm
Period: Surrealism…
Location: National Portrait Gallery
Created: 1928
Media: Oil paint
In René Magritte’s ‘Lovers’ (1928) two lovers kiss, wrapped in shrouds. The symbolism here is of love blinded, the cloth separating the pair as the spectre of death envelops passion. As an interesting aside, Magritte’s mother drowned when he was a child and when she was found, her nightgown covered her head.

 “My painting is visible images which conceal nothing,” he wrote, “they evoke mystery and, indeed, when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question, ‘What does it mean?’ It does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable.”- René Magritte

Roy Lichtenstein Kiss3

Pop Art period – Kisses

‘The Kiss’ (1962) by American artist Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) amplifies a classic ‘comic book’ kiss to iconic proportions.
The Kiss was among the first “comic strip” paintings for which Roy Lichtenstein became instantly famous in art circles. He’d always been fascinated by the work of cartoonists and saw many parallels between their styles and those of modern “Fine Arts” masters

 “I’m never drawing the object itself; I’m only drawing a depiction of the object – a kind of crystallised symbol of it.” – Roy Lichtenstein.

Massive Mural by KobraModern Street Art  Kisses

Eduardo Kobra – Born in São Paulo, in 1976. Lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil.
Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra utilizes bright colours and bold lines while staying true to a kaleidoscope theme throughout his art. The technique of repeating squares and triangles allows him to bring to life the famous people he depicts in his images. This chequered pattern, filled with different textures, lines, and shading, builds up to Eduardo Kobra’s final masterpiece, a larger than life mural for all to see and marvel at.

The original photo portrayed an American sailor kissing a woman in a white dress in Times Square, New York City, on August 14, 1945. The photograph was published a week later in Life magazine among many photographs of celebrations around the country that were presented in a twelve-page section called Victory


21st Century Modern Dance Kisses

JOHN W. MILLS British Sculptor
Bronze edition LIFE size
Viewing by appointment

contact ICAS – Vilas Fine Art UK.

 The subject derives from a ballet “Romeo and Juliet” by Frederick Ashton. It uses one of the famous ‘Pas des deux’ that feature in that ballet and are so typical of the choreography of Ashton. He causes the two dancers to melt so that they become like one person whilst retaining their individual grace and sexuality. My work with dancers seeks to convey such feelings without simply illustrating them. The dynamic of the dance and making of a powerful image using a beautiful subject is a constant challenge to John Mills.

“We all know that Art is not Truth. Art is a Lie that makes us realize the Truth, at least the Truth that is given to us to understand”

Pablo Picasso.

b&w portrait 3BIOGRAPHY

Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga, Spain, on 25 October 1881, he was the first child born in the family. His father worked as an artist, and was also a professor at the school of fine arts; he also worked as a curator for the museum in Malaga. Pablo is one of the most influential painters and artist of his time, he is also one of the most recognized figures of the 20th century.



Pablo Picasso studied under his father for one year, later joined the Academy of Arts for one year, prior to moving to Paris. In 1901 he went to Paris, which he found as the ideal place to practice new styles, and experiment with a variety of art forms. It was during these initial visits, which he began his work in surrealism and cubism style, which he was the founder of, and created many distinct pieces which were influenced by these art forms.


Collection of work

Pablo Picasso is recognized as the world’s most prolific painter. His career spanned over a 78 year period, in which he created: 13,500 paintings, 100,000 prints and engravings, and 34,000 illustrations which were used in books. He also produced 300 sculptures and ceramic pieces during this expansive career. It is also estimated that over 350 pieces which he created during his career, have been stolen; this is a figure that is far higher than any other artist throughout history.


Sale of his works

Pablo Picasso has also sold more pieces, and his works have brought in higher profit margins, than any other artist of his time. His pieces rank among the most expensive art works to be created; with a price tag of $104 million, title: Garson a la Pipe, painted in 1905 was sold in 2004.



The second painting title:  Nude Green Leaves and Bust painted in 1932, sold for $106.5 million in 2010.


Nude, Green leaves and Bust (also known as Nude with Sculptor's Turntable; Nu au plateau de sculpteur) 1932 Pablo Picasso 1881-1973 Lent from a private collection 2011 http://www.tate.org.uk/art/work/L02971

Nude, Green leaves and Bust (also known as Nude with Sculptor’s Turntable; Nu au plateau de sculpteur) 1932 Pablo Picasso 1881-1973 Lent from a private collection 2011 http://www.tate.org.uk/art/work/L02971

Picasso first encountered Marie-Thérèse Walter in January 1927. He kept their relationship secret for many years, even from some of his closest friends, but particularly from his wife Olga. In 1931-2 he embarked on a series of sculptures and paintings of Marie-Thérèse, made at his studio in the Chateau de Boisgeloup, which he had purchased in 1930. Picasso’s habit of dating his work very precisely makes it possible to trace the development of this sequence as Picasso discovered an increasingly complex manipulation of her body. Made on 8 March 1932, Nude, Green Leaves and Bust is the most intense among the group of large nudes, counterpointing the real head with a sculpted head, and the folds of Marie-Thérèse’s body with the luxuriant forms of a philodendron plant. The setting includes a secretive curtain against which the sculptural bust casts a double shadow, as if the white of the foreground nude was literally illuminating the space.

The WORLD record for most expensive work sold at auction was Francis Bacon’s triptych Three Studies of Lucian Freud, which sold for $142.4m at Christie’s in November 2013.


PabloPicasso-Women-of-Algiers-after-Delacroix-1955Monday 11th May 2015 at the Christies Auction in New York claim the World record for the highest value of $160 million for his painting title: “Women of Algiers”. Picasso embarked on a series of interpretations of some of his favourite paintings. Women of Algiers painted in the 1950s, is one of his responses to a sensuous eastern fantasy of harem life painted by Delacroix in 1834 that hangs in the Louvre.

I do not understand the information of evaluation of the Houses of Auctions, I think that not always the painting is in proportion with its evaluation… Picasso knew to sell his work in its time, he was also a genius of the marketing… Appoint 3 works by Picasso, among my favorites, is not easy:

“Marie-Thérèse, Face and Profile” “The pigeon pea” “The soup”

I believe Picasso, whether you like his work or not, proves to be the ultimate in creativity…..and this is why he is so widely recognised and appreciated. Plus how can an artist paint over 13,000 paintings and 100,000 prints and not go noticed?




I think Picasso’s works are all time favourite to all and in numbers he was a very versatile among artists.

I agree with your comment Lucia; it seems that all Picasso’s works are master pieces… and they are not, as you said they are marketing, so its going with Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst…

Sales such as this and the art market generally ought to have no bearing on the production of art and it’s organic progress. The only bearing it has is a negative one where the general public is once more astonished by the ridiculous amount of money that is awash in the market and how it negatively colours their perception of art generally. I love Picassos work but what I love more is the idea of spending that money more wisely in a world full of poverty and ecological disaster. If I was Picasso I would be spinning in my grave at the thought that my work was being used as a hidden trophy and not as a source of joy to the many! My three favourites?

“Ma Jolie” (1912), “Las Meninas” (1957) and “The Matador” (1970).

Unfortunately auctions or art sales when huge sums of currency are paid for art,is the true indicator of controlled art markets.While it seems an obvious simplistic statement,its relevancy is great.This type of thinking is an indicator of growth of art markets existing for centuries as art value grew to equalize how artist recognition is/was based,what artists would be offered gallery representation,a range of exhibitions + oft paid for non-critical reviews(either through contacts or contractual ventures,meaning how much money gallery’s paid for advertising in magazines,newspapers,radio or other media outlets)to higher recognition by eventual museum collections when friendship or business stepped in to control even those(museum)cherished collections.Remember>even Van Gogh,ignored in his day,never sold an artwork.The Reality:>>> A once relatively small wealthy strata always controlled the art market.That strata grew greater in strength and larger in number as the wealthy class grew in numbers.It’s basically a common truth living within the Art World.Nothing more,nothing less.You live with this truth as an artist.It’s an absolute no one has any control over.And if you love art or creating art,you simply always ignore this reality!

While there is certainly much more that can be written about this statement above ~~> including true stories of how certain artists were given there place and acknowledgement in museums via their varied connection/connections and others by a known “payola” process ~~~> certainly great honesty and a true museum selection process plays the greater roll. Regardless, artists should not be creating art because they want some form of recognition. Artists should only create art because it captured their wonderment and imagination at some point in life. And they continued because creation in and of itself is eternal. The only satisfaction should exist in creation’s completion and perhaps, its sharing. Many of my own artworks exist in quiet, unknown places near rivers, in forests and elsewhere. There are works in collections and I’m grateful for this. I’m eternally thankful I’m still physically able to create regardless of anything else affecting or effecting my life. I’m fortunate to be considered an artist and writer. The span of my being is insignificant. Life and creating are significant and own the greater expanse of my soul. …jmc

One of the most interesting aspects about art is understanding the why and the how of “becoming” an artist.

There is a myth that artists are somehow born knowing that they are artists, or that some event occurs in their lives that causes them to become artists, or that artists starve to create, artists are misunderstood, artists are creative undisciplined types who could only ever be artists, etc..,

sunil_vilas_thumbI have met many artists and I have found that very few of them meet the common stereotypes. It has been suggested that all of us at one point or another produced what can arguably be called “art”. We seek image making to be a form of celebration of humanity, leaving our imprint since the beginning of time, working with our natural flowing  instinct as a medium to communication and share our creativity.


“Knowledge has its Origin in our Perception”. – Leonardo Da Vinci.


“Try to put well in practice what you already know. In so doing, you will, in good time, discover the hidden things you now inquire about”. – Rembrandt.


“I am Seeking. I am Striving. I am in it with all my heart “. – Vincent Van Gogh.


“Every child is an artist. The problem to how to remain an artist once he grows up”. – Pablo Picasso.


The question was put to Globalization ICAS an art organisation and here are some of the feedback. Similarly I extend the question to you reading the article today, we welcome your comments  and views.  

What do you say? Do you believe to be any different for you?


Linda Sue Busch 

Linda Sue Busch – Wauseon, Ohio, USA.

Graduated December 21, 2013 with a BFA 2D Art in Painting and Drawing at Bowling Green State Univ., Bowling Green, OH


I knew when I was 8 yrs old that I was an artist. I dreamed of someday going to art school. All through grade school I was the class artist that drew things for the teacher and the other kids decorated. I won drawing contests.
From Jr. High on, I became a part of the world of academia and business. In 1973, when I graduated, women weren’t supposed to be artists and go to art school. Art was a man’s world. Women were supposed to be secretaries or nurses.
While in college, I painted, but my paintings were lacking the knowledge of the refining process. Through the years of working, marriage, and family, my art became totally foreign.
Then in 2009, I lost my job after 20 yrs. I was 54. Twenty people in their fifties with medical histories were let go. I was lost. I had played around with art on the computer, but nothing serious. I was so lost I thought it was the end of my life. I prayed “Lord what do I do now? What do I do with the rest of my life at my age?” With my heart open, I heard Him ‘loud and clear,’ “You know what to do. I gave you a gift a long time ago. You haven’t used it. Now you will go back to school and learn how to use your gift. When you are done, I have a plan for you.”
I immediately, without question or hesitation, went to the local community college and enrolled in Visual Communication. In the required drawing class I found myself. I stood up one day and yelled, “I know who I am now!” My teacher called me her light bulb. After 1-1/2 yrs and an Associates degree, I enrolled in Bowling Green State University School of Art. After passing my Portfolio Review with flying colors, I was accepted into the Bachelor of Fine Arts program. I graduated in Dec.2013, at age 59 (the oldest graduate at that time), with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 2D Painting and Drawing.
I still don’t have a job now that I’m 60, but I couldn’t be happier. I have God constantly pushing me and my refined gift. And I have art friends and teachers (also friends) from school for encouragement and answers to questions.
I believe that Art is Who You Are Inside Coming to the Outside in Solid View.

It’s all about vision, observation and recreating of what we see to a better more suitable physical reality… As a philosophy asking the question why? And creating the answer to a physical state. I don’t think it’s only about the talent you have or what you know, but the unending desire to create, recreate, finding answers and bring what is non physical to the physical. Everyone can learn a technic (with some it takes longer than others) , but the originality of the new creation is what makes it…

An Artist is a combination between the individual in question abilities and crucially, his willingness. Someone’s specific abilities are objective facts that may be learned after studying him, willingness on the other side may be inferred partially through his behaviour and sometimes through words, but the biggest hurdle is that I could never know what it feels to be you.

My story is very different. When I was a little boy I love art ,I felt it in my blood and I want to paint on canvas.Living in small town in south Italy it was impossible to buy a canvas. So I cut some of my mother bed sheet and I painted on it .I always treasure it with me.
My dream faded when my father pulled me off school to help him as fisherman.The Good Lord is always on my side to help me with my art .I was 50 yrs old when I start to take art classes .Close to retirement I had to leave my job ,because the company sent all jobs over sea. I ask to work for Silvermine art center (CT) and I was accepted.The Lord works in mysterious way, and I was able to take a free art lessons. My dreams came true. Now I paint and I sculpt.

Direttore Amm.vo presso Ministero delle Infrastrutture e Trasporti, ma principalmente “ARTISTA”

I am artist by accident, in the family are artists sculptor and painter uncle and my brother sculptor and art teacher. I was born an artist to imitate them, though since I drew and scribbled sheets to hide. Sheets I’ve dusted off later and that I have allowed to be what they are today. So the student surpassed the master (uncle and brother). I’m not a real artist, but a little water carrier of art source. I have little time to devote to my passion but what I do is done with love, insanity, ingenuity, imagination, mostly portraying the world that surrounds me, person facts, history. I feel bound, family binds me, my work as administrative director binds me, i think the real artists are those who do not have constraints, wild animals that can express their own instincts and represent them on that white support filling it with color, shapes, strokes, smudges, remembering always to represent only the best, because it is in this way that you transmit happiness, love, Joie de vivre, peace and brotherhood, erasing hate

(Author/Artist / Illustrator) children’s & young adult fiction

I’d say some people are acutely aware of design, form and colour from an early age. It could be that their parents or teachers made them aware of such areas and created a “taste” within them and the household. As a young kid, I used to pay close attention when my mother would comment on various design qualities of objects such as cups, bags and other everyday objects. She’d ask me for my opinion too. My father did the same with anything D.I.Y related. I knew I wanted to become a designer or artist, something which led me to become an author and illustrator. We become artists not by choice, but by being offered a creative outlet and means to pour out the many ideas that float around inside our head, just waiting to be born. We must create it to see it in a tangible form then move on to the next idea. If I don’t write I can’t sleep. I get ideas at 2 am or 7 am and keep a note pad by my bed. It’s really a calling and one few are able to answer.

Art is my way of attempting to capture that moment when you see something that makes you feel alive and connected with the universe

Fine Artist

We become artists because we love creating something from nothing. When I was in grammar school, I made drawings in my book reports pertaining to the subject of the report. It was not required, but I felt that I needed to do that. I never thought about the future as an artist. I just decided one day that I love to paint and draw and wanted to do it whenever I had a chance to.

We make art because we must. We make art regardless of financial success, recognition, or understanding. We make art to understand our purpose. We make art because we feel close to our Creator when we ourselves create. We make art because our spirits would wither and die if we did not. It is our purpose, our calling.

Thank you for visiting us today have a Creative inspiring day!!!
