The Stolen Kiss

The Stolen Kiss is a painting by French painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard created in the late 1780s. Painted in a style characteristic of the French Rococo period, it depicts a passionate kiss between two lovers. The composition is diagonal, made up by an axis composed through her leaning figure, the shawl and the balcony door opening from the outside, ending with the table the shawl is draped over. The painting is hosted in the collection of the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg.
