The Three Graces.

Name: The Three Graces.
Artist: Raphael
Location: Conde Museum, Chantilly, France
Year: 1503

Painted in Florence, this work is based on the poem 'Punica' by Silius Italicus, which tells the story of a sleeping knight, who has to chose between pleasure (Venus) and virtue (Minerva). The Three Graces of this painting reward his choice with the Golden . Apples of the Hesperides. Raphael's graceful composition is an eloquent study of the female human form. This is also his first of a female nude in both front and back views.
