Display caption

The shepherd Paris judged a contest of beauty between the goddesses Venus, Juno and Minerva. He here awards the prize of a golden apple to Cupid to give to Venus, who is seen at the left with her clothes billowing around her. Fantin-Latour is best known as a painter of flowers, but throughout his life he also painted subject pictures like this small, early oil sketch.

January 1990
