Canova's Three Graces at the V&A - front left view

    FIRST TO REACH 3,000 VIEWS, THEN 4,000, AND NOW 5,000!!! THANKS TO ALL MY LOYAL VISITORS! Now can you please do the same for some of my other photos?! Better still, all of them!!!

    One of two versions of The Three Graces by Antonio Canova (the other is at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg). Taken at the old Sculpture Court in the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2000.

    The picture is a bit grainy and adjusting the contrast has burned out part of the background.

      very nice, captures the range of feelings about the work. i think the background is perfect as is - less intrusive.

      Slightly belated but now done, along with the four other female sculpture photos I've posted to date.

      Huge thanks to Priscilla Barreto for the mass fave - never before have so many of my humble efforts been singled out for praise!
