Description The Three Graces form a compact group of robust nudes on an ivory plinth strewn with flowers. The figure on the right holding a garland turns her head sharply to her left and downward, and her wavy hair cascades over her shoulder. The central figure stands frontallly and looks over her right shoulder at the lively Cupid perched above. She covers her breast with her left hand, which is adorned with a garland; her right hand grasps the hand of the third Grace. Perched above the Graces, Cupid clutches an arrow and the remnants of a torch. The front of the plinth, the toes from the right foot of the central figure, and the left foot of the right-hand figure are lost.
Provenance William T. Walters / Henry Walters Collection, Baltimore, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
