The Kiss by Gustav Klimt

















(right picture: detail)
I thought that I had to publish "The Kiss", 1908, by Klimt even thou it is very famous but since Munch's painting is at the post below it is easier to compare them.
I could swear that the couple is the same in another place shrouded in gold on a bed made of flowers.

I've always liked this painting. I didn't realize that Munch's drawing/painting was the inspiration but it is easy to see. In Munch's drawing the faces of the lovers are one shape. The paintings of both artists play with that line of where one begins and there other one ends.

I didn't know either.
You are so right:
" The paintings of both artists play with that line of where one begins and there other one ends."
Yes.
