The Graces, also known as the Charites or Gratiae, played an essential role in ancient Greek and Roman mythology. While the Graces — Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia — are best known for their charm, beauty and associations with nature and fertility, they were daughters of Zeus that primarily served as attendants to the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus, often appearing in mythological feasts and dances. The divine trio has supplied endless inspiration for some of the most remarkable painters and sculptors throughout history, including masters Sandro Botticelli, Ambrogio Lorenzetti, Peter Paul Rubens, Jean-Baptiste Regnault and Pablo Picasso, as well as the craftsman of this masterful centerpiece.
