Happy Valentine’s day from la Fée Culturelle

Happy Valentine’s day to my dear followers and readers

The artwork of the day is Il bacio, painted by the Italian Romantic artist Francesco Hayez, a leading artist of mid-19th-century Milan. I discovered it in 2002 on my first art trip, at the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan. The painting must be the most passionate representation of a kiss in the history of western art.
