Public domain ← → Kiss Edvard Munch Original Title: Kyss Alternative name: The Kiss (Munch painting) Date: 1897 Style: Expressionism Period: European period Genre: genre painting Media: oil, canvas Dimensions: 81 x 99 cm Location: Munch Museum, Oslo, Norway Tags: couples Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Kiss_(Munch_painting) References: www.munch.museum.no Image dimension 477x600px, View all sizes Munch created many works in a thematic vein, including The Kiss, and exhibited them along side each other in what he called The Freize of Life. The themes in the series ranged from love and death, sex, anxiety, infidelity, jealousy and the stages of life, and included the famous painting The Scream. This painting captures an intimate moment between two nudes, the woman pulling the man towards her in a lover’s embrace, mouths locked in a passionate kiss, and is an example of Munch’s theme of the femme fatal as the dominant creature, taking control to feed her sexual appetite.
