The Kiss is a sculpture by Romanian Modernist sculptor Constantin Brâncuși. It is an early example of his proto-cubist style of non-literal representation.
The original stone carving is in the Muzeul de Arta at Craiova, Romania.

11 x 10 1/4 x 8 1/2 in. (27.9 x 26 x 21.6 cm.)
Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection, Nasher Sculpture Center
The Kiss represents Brancusi’s “road to Damascus” moment in which he distinguished himself from the towering figure of Rodin through the technique of carving directly into stone and cultivating a pristine and sensuous style that drew on the examples of African tribal and ancient Cycladic figures.
Brancusi originally carved The Kiss in stone, and the work established his reputation as an important avant-garde sculptor. The version in the Nasher Collection is one of several plaster casts that Brancusi made of the original carved stone in an effort to meet demands for exhibitions
