The customer set a condition: he and the girl should be depicted in the picture in a passionate kiss. Klimt fulfilled his wish, the Count was satisfied. But he was tormented by one question: why in the picture their lips did not close in a passionate kiss?
Gustav explained this by trying to portray the desire, mood, and atmosphere – the motives that are thrown into the abyss of love at the moment the kiss itself.
The Count accepted the answer… She liked the picture so much that after a while the customer was leaving with his young wife on a wedding journey: seeing the picture, she immediately agreed to marry him.
Later, Klimt revealed the secret of “The Kiss”. It turns out that when the artist painted the picture, he himself fell in love with a girl with a medallion. Therefore, he depicted a tedious waiting for a kiss instead of the kiss itself. It was an act of small revenge out of a sense of jealousy for the Count.
