The Three Graces

The Three Graces


This is from a Dore woodcut illustrating Dante's Divine Comedy.

This is the only image not taken from the Pardise Chapter. It is from Purgatory XXIX, lines 122 - 126, and shows the three virtues, Faith, Hope and Charity. 'Came onward dancing; one so very red/That in the fire she hardly had been noted./The second was if her flesh and bones/Had all been fashioned out of emerald;/The third appeared as snow but newly fallen.'

The picture is painted in acrylic on a Loxley Gold box canvas with 24 carat gold highlights and has two layers of varnish. It is signed on the reverse in pencil. All edges are painted and varnished. The image size is 20cm x 25cm (8" x 10").

This is one of a series of paintings on this theme.
