Fat women in Art
Les 3 grâces de Rubens
Classical mythological theme since the Renaissance, the Three Graces, daughters of Zeus, symbols of beauty.

The painter says again here his taste for pictorial treatment of full female form. The Three Graces, which reveals a strong sense of rhythm and composition, brimming with sensuality and vitality. These feelings are served by the representation of opulent shapes and transparent and pearly that reflect through the shimmering play of light, the pantheistic vision of the artist and his exceptional mastery of the key complexions.
