The Three Graces are part of an ongoing series of watercolours and canvases based on images of the sculptor Canova's Neo-Classical marble masterpiece. The three goddesses are shown nude, huddled together. Their heads almost touching. Corcoran liked the delicate beauty and peaceful balance that seems to exist between the three heads.
