‘The Kiss’ by Paul Moreau-Vauthier*

Item Description

This is an original old edition of the sensual patinated bronze sculpture “The Kiss” by Paul Moreau-Vauthier (1871-1936) dating from circa 1900.

 A fine, somewhat erotic composition of two naked lovers, the man standing immediately behind the woman and both turning their heads to kiss. He has his arms around her and their fingers are intertwined across her breast as they appear totally lost in the moment.  

A rarely offered figure, we’ve only ever come across another example in the Belgian Museum of Fine Arts.

Moreau-Vauthier was a highly regarded French sculptor who was awarded the L├ęgion d’Honneur in 1910 and produced a number of official memorials after the First World War.  He died in a motoring accident in February 1936.

Signed to one side of the socle and a little under 30 cm high on its marble plinth.
