Gilded bronze mirror with the Three Graces


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 168

This mirror belongs to the same group as the adjacent one with Europa and the Bull (1978.11.4). The Three Graces were eminently suitable subject matter for a toilet article such as a mirror. However, they had a wider appeal and are found represented in many different media, including Roman mosaics and sculpture. A fine example of such a sculptural group is displayed in the adjoining Roman courtyard (2010.260).
