Description of the painting by Edward Munch "Kiss"


The painting "Kiss" was painted by Edward Munch in 1897. Like all the work of the scandalous artist, this also creates a dual impression. On the one hand, she looks gloomy, repulsive and negative, despite the fact that she depicts a kiss. On the other hand, I want to look at the picture and look, gradually revealing all its facets, all its secrets and secrets.

The plot of the picture is as follows: a couple in love, hiding behind a thin curtain, enjoys a kiss in the light of the sevens, while forgetting about everything in the world. Despite the fact that the situation is considered extremely piquant, Munch conveyed all the sensations very delicately. With the help of a distortion of space, he slightly altered the passion and glow that should have been coming from the lovers with electric waves.

Despite the relatively poor color scheme, the artist gave paint to some details. For example, the eye-catching details of orange women's clothing not only significantly increase the temperament of the picture, but also create a kind of fleur, mystery and even fantasy around the couple.

But the main idea of ​​Edward Munch was to deprive the figures of contours and faces. Despite this, he managed to give them plasticity and grace. The absence of faces is the encoding of information about the characters in the picture themselves. The most important thing is their feelings, emotions, feelings, and not their social status or any facial features or figures. After all, love must exist exclusively on a spiritual level.

Another detail of the picture is the silhouette of a man who is visible through a small window. Edward Munch, as it were, with the help of a curtain separates real humanity and a faceless, empty society. What matters here is only the intensity of passions, in the end, the kiss itself, and everything else that is behind this small square of the room is stupid, insignificant and worthless.
