Abstract:The term grazia carried a variety of meanings in Renaissance thought: theological grace, courtly grace, a woman's lovely bearing, or a woman's graciousness to her suitor. Raphael's depictions of women in repose and in motion, within and outside narrative settings, in secular and religious contexts, offer examples of all the word's various meanings.
