One of the best paintings Baldung – “Three Graces” – inherent in the charm of simplicity, fairy-tale and purity. Baldung is interested in conveying the contrasts of the dense nighttime darkness of the forest and the mysterious moonlight. The paintings of Hans Baldung are reflected in allegorical and mythological themes, as well as themes of witchcraft and witches. For example, the painting “Two Sorceresses”, full of sensuality and cruelty, created under the influence of superstitions of the Reformation times of the 16th century. Baldung until the end of his days wrote characters and scenes from ancient legends, mythology and history.
Such works as, for example, “Piram and Fisba”, “Hercules and Antey”, “Mutsii Scavola” and others. These paintings of Baldung “The Three Graces” and other works in some way testify to the transition of his creative manner, as an artist, from the Renaissance style to Mannerism. In the future, the picturesque and psychological content of his work becomes more and more mannered, reflecting in particular the impact of the Italian school of painting of that time. Baldung has developed his own special style of Mannerism: the collision of flowers and the sinuous lines of the picture in combination with the naturalism of the details.
