Aurelio Amendola’s photograph presents Antonio Canova’s “Le Tre Grazie” from a frontal perspective, showcasing the full sculpture and highlighting the delicate expressions of the depicted Graces. Sculpted by Canova between 1814 and 1817, “Le Tre Grazie” depicts the three mythological figures known as the Graces or Charites in Greek mythology. The Graces, named Aglaea, Euphrosyne, and Thalia, were said to represent beauty, charm, and joy, embodying the qualities that brought harmony and grace to the world. Canova’s rendition captures the timeless elegance and serenity associated with the Graces, showcasing his mastery of Neoclassical sculpture. Through exquisite craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail, Canova immortalized the idealized forms of the Graces, creating a sculptural masterpiece that continues to captivate viewers with its beauty and grace.

Amendola’s photograph not only presents the sculpture in its entirety but also accentuates Canova’s artistic vision and technical brilliance in portraying classical subjects with elegance and refinement.
