The Three Graces
(Las Tres Gracias)
ORIGINAL SIZE: 87″ X 123.6″

Represents a group of three women, nudes in the forest, which is inspired by models of ancient times of classical Italian culture, a common characteristic of Rubens’ works. Possibly a later work of the master, where he shows a modification by adding turpentine to his paint, that implies more fluidity to his colour tones.

Curiousity: the woman on the right was his second wife, Helena Fourment.
