The Italian neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova was known as the creator of marble sculptures, which were delicately sculpted into naked people. One of his most famous sculptures is Psyche Revived by Cupid's Kiss, also known as Psyche and Cupid, which he sculpted between 1787 and 1793. In this sculpture, Canova portrayed the loving embrace of two major characters from Greek mythology: Love, or Cupid in Latin, and the soul, Psyche. He captures two sides of love; its incredible strength and its fragility and tenderness. The original Psyche Revived by Cupid's Kiss sculpture is currently on display at the Louvre in Paris.

A collection of poems Words (French: Paroles) by famous and popular French poet Jacques Prévert is first published in 1946. The very short poem The Garden (French: Le Jardin) from this collection defines a stereotype, the moment of the emperor differently and originally and captures feelings and pour it into words. Within the lines of the poem, Prévert managed to paint happiness with few words and gives a message that little things are those that move us and make us stop in time.

The Garden by Jacques Prévert

Thousands and thousands of years
Would not suffice
To tell
The tiny second of eternity
When you kissed me

The series of works by the Romanian sculptor Constantin Brâncuși, entitled The Kiss, is one of the most famous depictions of love in the history of art. There were several versions of The Kiss that Brâncuși sculpted, each of them simplifying the concept of sparse objects and geometry in his forms further. The original sculpture is in Muzeul de Arta in Romania. This early plaster sculpture is one of six casts that Brâncuși made of the 1907–08 The Kiss. The sculpture The Kiss, which can be seen at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, marked a great departure from the emotional realism of the famous sculpture.

Both Auguste Rodin and Constantin Brâncuși has their own The Kiss sculpture. Both sculptures by these two famous sculptors, working in the same city, are of the same subject and both are carved directly into the stone. Also, their sculptures are the same by name but different by meaning. There's hardly a way to compare the two sculptures otherwise; they look like they hail from different worlds entirely. Rodin's sculpture is more academic and conventional while Brâncuși's sculpture is more primal and addresses a basic emotion in the heart and soul of humanity in a more direct manner.

Auguste Rodin's inspiration for The Kiss

Trained in the traditions of eighteenth-century art, captivated by the works of Renaissance artist Michelangelo and fascinated by the works of classical Greece, Auguste Rodin broke the rules and the mold in many of his sculptures. Rodin's main inspiration for The Kiss comes from a literary source, and its classical composition was taken from classic sculptures of his time. He captures a tangible feeling of the psychology of love in the way the bodies of Paolo and Francesca for The Gates of Hell meld into one another, portraying the essence of complete passion.
