Description of obverse and reverse The obverse of the coin bears an image of the work The Three Graces, painted by Peter Paul Rubens between 1630 and 1635. The painting is held by the Prado National Museum. The reverse of the coin bears an image of the work Philip II on Horseback, painted by Peter Paul Rubens towards 1630. The painting is held by the Prado National Museum. The Three Graces (1630-1635) According to Hesiod’s Theogony, there were three Graces: Aglaia, which means radiance; Euphrosine, which means joy; and Thalia, which means flowering. Born of one of Zeus’s affairs, the three Graces were pure virgins who lived with the gods, served at the banquets and fostered joie de vivre. They served Aphrodite, the goddess of love, and were never bored. Rubens depicts them beside a fountain, under a garland of flowers in a landscape. The figure on the left is directly inspired by Rubens’ second wife, Hélène Forment. Felipe II on horseback (ca. 1630) In the reverse, a posthumous portrait of Felipe II wearing full body armor, a cape and a hat and riding a horse. Victory crowns him with laurels. Inspired by the knightly ideas of the sixteenth century, this portrait is based on representations of Roman emperors that circulated on Flemish and Italian prints. This work was made in 1628 during the artist's second visit to Spain. Rubens used objects from the Royal Armory, including the armour and sword, which are the same ones used by Titian for his portrait of the same monarch.
