Three Graces

Three Graces by Raphael

The Charites, or Graces, are minor goddesses in the Greek mythology. They were Aglaea ("Splendor"), Euphrosyne ("Mirth"), and Thalia ("Good Cheer"). Their Roman counterparts are called the Gratiae.

Influence

5th century BCE

During the Peloponnesian War in the 5th century BCE the Graces were revered throughout Greece. The City of Orchomenos in Boeotia featured one of the sanctuaries dedicated to the Charites, though it was burned down before the Peloponnesian War.[1]

Renaissance

During the Renaissance a painting by Raphael featuring three graces was on display in the Villa Auditore in Monteriggioni.[2]

In 1494 the actor Pietro Rossi had to leave Ercole d'Este's theatre in Ferrara because Pietro was caught in bed with an actress of one of the three Graces.[3]
