”The Kiss”, 1927, oil on canvas 

by Max Ernest, German artist, Surrealist

Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice

“The centralized, pyramidal grouping and the embracing gesture of the upper figure in The Kiss have lent themselves to comparison with Renaissance compositions, specifically the Madonna and Saint Anne by Leonardo da Vinci. Visually, the technique produces undulating calligraphic rhythms, like those traced here against the glowing earth and sky colors.“ More about work here
