Description

Cast bronze. This piece features a man and woman kissing on top of sheets. The man is leaning into the woman and has his arms wrapped around her and resting on the small of her back. The woman's arms are wrapped loosely around the man and rest right below his neck. Her back is arched, and a pillow rests behind her.

This sculpture is part of the Lovers series, which consists of ten versions of works on the "lovers" theme. Lovers V began as a sketch, which was enlarged to a 22" scale model that Umlauf used to exectute this sculpture. It was common practice for Umlauf to begin life-size sculptures by creating a series of smaller sketches and models to work out design flaws.
