After discussing my ideas with Steph in my tutorial, she told me to really research into the meanings behind the paintings to make my photographs much more conceptual and not so literal. This painting was created for Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco to hang in his bedroom after getting married to his wife. The specific part i wanted to capture in the photography / styling were the three graces – who are the three women dancing on the left of the painting. They represent the feminine virtues of Chastity, Beauty and Love, all of which point to the romantic depiction of the painting. They also have pearls accessorised on their heads which points to the meanings of purity. Also, all dressed in lace and silk, which seems very light and delicate backs this idea of purity up too.
