“The Kiss” by Austrian painter Gustav Klimt at the Belvedere Palace in Vienna, Austria. Photos of the original painting are not allowed even though there are stores that sell vases, plates, notebooks, notecards, magnets, etc. with this painting. I found this version on the Internet…hope copyright infringement doesn’t apply. But there was a side room with a large poster of the painting available for those who wanted to do selfies however the coloring of the poster looked nothing like the original. Honestly, no copy I’ve seen, including this one, can duplicate the intensity of the original. The yellows are so bright, they sparkle. The spirals have depth. The colored circles look like Venetian glass and the kiss itself is warm, loving and eternal. June 14, 2016
