Casgliad: Casgliad y Chwiorydd Davies

Daw Y Gusan o grw^p a ddyfeisiwyd ar gyfer Pyrth Ufern gan Rodin, sy'n cynrychioli'r cariadon trist Paolo a Francesca yn Inferno Dante. Ym 1887 comisiynodd gwladwriaeth Ffrainc fersiwn farmor anferth, a arddangoswyd am y tro cyntaf ym 1898. Cafodd y gyfres efydd y mae'r gwaith hwn yn perthyn iddi ei chastio gan Alexis Rudier, a ddaeth yn fwriwr haearn i Rodin ym 1902. Prynwyd y gwaith gan Gwendoline Davies ym 1912 a'i arddangos yn yr Arddangosfa Fenthyg a drefnwyd gan Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Cymru ym 1913.

The Kiss is one of my favourite pieces & I made many visits when at university until 2007.
We’re visiting next weekend - is it still there?

319 bronze copies were made of The Kiss but under French law only the first 12 are deemed original. Is the Cardiff copy one of those?

I spent a relaxing afternoon on my own at the museum/art gallery 18 Aug 2017 and was delighted to see The Kiss amongst other wonderful exhibits. One of the best afternoons I have spent for a very long time. What a truly fantastic selection.

As a young teenager I was fascinated by this sculpture- endlessness walking around it to see how the shapes became embroiled in each other. Mesmerising!

Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately The Kiss is not on display at the moment due gallery refurbishments - it is due to be back on display in April 2010.
