Grace The Muse Art Print by Michelle Rene Goodhew - $22.88 I was inspired by a woman named Jenny from Australia to paint this beautiful image of a galloping horse. I loved creating this one :-) Jenny loved it so much she allowed me the honor of naming her newborn philly! So I named her 'Grace', after the graces who were the three daughters of Zeus in Greek mythology. The graces were muses, and inspired artists like me, and still do maybe ;-)
The Charites were the goddesses of charm, beauty, nature, human creativity and fertility. They were great lovers of beauty and gave humans talents in the arts, closely associated with the Muses. The Charites were associated with the underworld and the Eleusinian Mysteries.The river Cephissus near Delphi was sacred to them.
The Muses, the personification of knowledge and the arts, especially literature, dance and music, are the nine daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne (memory personified). ..... [source: Wikipedia] art: The Three Graces (muses) at the Louvre, Paris
