Three Graces
In 18th century art the three graces were considered the embodiment of charm and were occasionally depicted together with Eros, the symbol of carnal and often disastrous love. Francois Boucher immortalized the group in one of his famous paintings, while E.M. Falconet created a wonderful clock with marble statues (around 1779, Paris, Louvre). There are also similar pieced signed by Le Paute.
