The Kiss, Gustav Klimt“It’s the way you love me
It’s a feeling like this
It’s centrifugal motion
It’s perpetual bliss
It’s that pivotal moment
This kiss, this kiss (it’s unstoppable)“
This Kiss, Faith Hill
What’s in a kiss? More than touching lips, chemistry and feel good vibes, these artists (whom I’ve featured here) have immortalized the kiss visually and through music, the language of love.
The image of The Kiss (above) was taken from the Atelier des Lumieres digital exhibition, Gustav Klimt and Hundertwasser, in Paris in 2018. The original painting is in the Austrian Gallery Museum of the Belvedere Palace in Vienna.

I wanna hold her tight

This iconic photograph was taken in New York by Victor Jorgensen, a U.S. Navy photo journalist after the surrender of Japan in 1945. This photograph is in the public domain as it was taken by a government employee on official duty. Not to be confused with the photo taken by Albert Eisenstaedt which was on the cover of Life magazine.
Kiss, Toby Heller“Or is it in his face, oh no it’s just his charm
In his warm embrace, oh no that’s just his arm
If you want to know, if he loves you so
It’s in his kiss
That’s where it is, oh it’s in his kiss”
It’s in His Kiss, Betty Everett
Thelma “Toby” Heller was an American artist and jewelry designer. This sculpture of the Kiss was taken on main street in Gstaad, Switzerland.

Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band, and make the fireflies dance”
Kiss Me, Sixpence Non the Richer
“Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright.”
