The non-stop emails about senior priority registration tomorrow is incredibly daunting.  Not that I’m not incredibly happy to graduate in a year, but it means MA/Ph.D. apps need to properly commence soon and I still can’t decide if I want to concentrate on early 20th century French or German art.  How am I to choose between Bonnard/Vuillard/Nabis etc. and Klimt/Schiele/Kokoschka/ Dix/etc. !?!?

Fact:

funartfacts:

The three Graces in Greek mythology are: Aglaia (beauty), Euphrosynia (joy), and Thalia (charm).  However, there are numerous other Graces or Charities who are to preside over the other pleasures of life.

The three Kharites (Charities) were usually depicted in classical sculpture and mosaic as three nude women, holding hands and dancing in a circle.
