1. The Three Graces Dancing (c.1799). Antonio Canova (Italian, 1757–1822). Tempera on paper. Museo Canova.

    Canova mentioned “various ideas on dances, the play between nymphs and cupids, muses, philosophers, etc., sketched exclusively for the artist’s own study and enjoyment.” There is little doubt he was referring to the tempera cycle at Possagno and similar sketches now in Bassano.
