Copy of Rodin's "The Kiss"
Henri Gréber, French, 1855 - 1941. After Auguste Rodin, French, 1840 - 1917.
Jules Mastbaum, the founder of the Rodin Museum, selected this work for placement in the main gallery of the Museum, describing it as “perhaps the finest group in marble by Rodin.” The Musée Rodin in Paris granted Mastbaum permission to have a posthumous replica carved of the artist’s famous embracing couple, which was first conceived for The Gates of Hell (Philadelphia Museum of Art, F1929-7-128).
