The Masterpieces series is a collection that analyses great works of universal art and indispensable sources of reference. Each book offers a detailed study of a masterpiece, with a compilation and update of the selected pieces written by top experts and with a spectacular graphic layout. In this book, Alejandro Vergara analyses the Greek myth of the three Graces; its meanings throughout history and the different manners in which it has been represented in art since very early times. He also examines Ruben's works and the insistence of the painter, who was well versed in classical culture, on portraying these three figures in his paintings. Vergara provides a fresh interpretation of this painting, which was among Ruben's possessions when he died and must have commemorated his own marriage to Helena Fourment, 'a hymn to love inspired by the artist's marriage'.
