The Enormous Kiss was created by Isamorph
One of the two parties (George Mendonsa) to the famous 1945 Times Square kiss died Sunday at age 95. Although Gustav Klimt's masterpiece "The Kiss" has been seen by millions, the photo of the kiss showing George Mendonsa kissing Greta Friedman has likely been viewed a billion+ times over the years. Although the photo has been celebrated for many decades, the idea that a young sailor who had been drinking, who grabbed on to and kissed an unknown women without her consent, has tarnished the image for some. That said, both George and Greta ( died age 92 ) lived long lives, so maybe there's some magic to this kissing stuff after all.
