The Kiss

This 50-minute programme in the BBC series The Private Life of a Masterpiece explores Auguste Rodin’s erotic sculpture, which has forbidden love as its inspiration. Historians, artists and pundits reveal its power and influence, supported by stunning visuals and imaginative reconstruction.


“The program let Rodin's magnificent sculpture hold centre stage”
“This was a beautifully crafted and imaginatively photographed documentary”

Evening Standard

“A Kiss that lingers”
“Lively, intelligent and alert to fun”

The Independent

“If the definition of great art is its timelessness, then this simple but exquisitely executed study is certainly the real thing.”
