The Three Graces


RCIN 912754

Around 1518 Raphael’s assistants frescoed the vault of the garden loggia of Agostino Chigi’s villa in Rome, now known as the Villa Farnesina. This is a study, from a single model in three consecutive poses, for the Three Graces pouring a libation in the Wedding Feast of Cupid and Psyche. Though Raphael executed none of the frescoes himself, drawings such as this show that he was closely involved in their design. No. 13
