Description

Cast bronze. The piece features a man and a woman kissing. The man is standing upright and holding the woman across her back and thighs. The woman's right leg extends outward horizontally, while her left leg is crossed over her right leg.

French sculptor Auguste Rodin's Kiss (1889) inspired Umlauf to create this sculpture. While Rodin's figures occupy a compact space, Umlauf dramatically extended the female figure's leg outward.
