Earlier this month, Rodin's sculpture `The Kiss' was returned by the Tate Gallery to the Assembly Rooms in Lewes where it last stood in 1917.

Keith Darvill's dramatic feature explores the background to the commission of this erotic masterpiece by Bostonian aesthete Edward Perry Warren, whose Lewes home became a semi-monastic shrine to art, erudition and `Uranian' love.
