Bronze sculpture details
“The Kiss” is among Bruni’s most famous works. The artist contrasts the embracing couple not just through the different colouring, they also each stand for one of the forms of representation taught in classic sculpting. The smooth, delicately rounded female body stands in contrast to an altogether classical arrangement of folds in the man.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
As a painter, printmaker and sculptor Bruno Bruni is one of the most popular contemporary artists. After visiting the "Istituto d'Arte" in Pesaro (Italy) and studying at the "State Academy of Fine Arts" (Staatlichen Hochschule für bildende Künste) at George Gresko, Paul Wunderlich led him in the technique of polychrome beam lithography, a technique that has fascinated him from then until the present day.
