El Beso

I do not duplicate masters for the same reason it is from masters and it should only be seen and admired; not to be spoil the original beauty. This was irresistible. Technically I didn’t duplicate because it is only a pencil sketch and not oil 😉 Il bacio (The Kiss) is an 1859 painting by Francesco Hayez. This is his best known work that conveys the main features of Romanticism.

The Kiss - Mercy

The Kiss – Mercy

You swallowed everything, like distance.

Like the sea, like time.

In you everything sank!

It was the happy hour of assault and the kiss.

The hour of the spell that blazed like a lighthouse.

Pilot’s dread, fury of a blind diver,

Turbulent drunkenness of love,

In you everything sank!

―Pablo Neruda
