As Homer tells it in The Iliad, Paris the shepherd, son of Priam, had to decide with of the three goddesses —Juno, Venus or Minerva— was the most beautiful, and give her the golden apple Mercury he had received from Mercury. On the left, Paris appears to be meditating, with the apple still in his hands. His attention is focused on Venus, in the middle of the composition. Minerva´s weapons are visi

The Garden of Love
Oil on canvas. 1630 - 1635
Rubens, Peter Paul

We are confronted here with one of Rubens’s greatest gifts as a painter: his ability to create images of a joyful way of being in the world related to love and inspired by ancient literature and Renaissance art. In the case of the latter, this means primarily Titian. This painting is especially close in mood to the Bacchanal of the Andrians and the Worship of Venus. Many features of this scene cal

The mythological story of the Judgment of Paris begins with the wedding of Thetis and Peleus, where Eris, goddess of Discord, challenged the most beautiful goddesses to take a golden apple which she threw among the guests. Juno, Minerva and Venus started to argue and Jupiter decided to give the apple to Mercury and let Paris be the judge of this dispute. This judgment is told by the Roman poet Ovi

As with the Rape of Hippodamia (P01658), this marriage scene was commissioned from Rubens as part of the mythological cycle drawn from Ovid´s Metamorphoses, which was to serve as the main artistic decoration of the Torre de la Parada. While Rubens prepared the oil sketch for the scene (Art Institute of Chicago), the Marriage of Peleus and Thetis was one of the numerous full-scale canvases whose ex

Hercules was born from one of Jupiter´s affairs with a mortal. Though loved and protected by his father, he was repudiated by the latter´s wife, Juno. In order to insure his son´s immortality, Jupiter placed him in the goddess´s arms so that he could suckle while she was sleeping next to her chariot pulled by peacocks. When, in his enthusiasm, Hercules bites her, Juno awakens and brusquely pulls h

The Goddess Juno

Juno occupied a central place in the Greco-Latin pantheon, as she was the wife of Jupiter and protector of marriage. Cano alludes to her status through the golden sceptre and diadem and depicts her alongside a peacock, her identifying attribute. Her bare breast reminds us that she was a figure often associated with motherhood.The work was published in 1999 by A.E. Pérez Sánchez, and

Albani, Francesco

Francesco Albani was a much favoured pupil of Annibale Carracci. His success was partially due to mythological paintings such as The toilet of Venus (P1) and The judgement of Paris (P2), whose refined and lyrical view of nature helped disseminate the classical ideals of the Carracci`s landscapes.Albani`s The judgement of Paris, c.1650-60, shows the shepherd prince admiring the beauty of three godd

Air, one of the four elements, is embodied by the goddess, Juno, who sits in a carriage drawn by the peacocks that customarily symbolize her. She is accompanied by the nymph, Iris, who frames the scene with her marvelous rainbow. On earth, under a leafy tree, two cupids play with soap bubbles, alluding to the ethereal nature of the element in question. Along with paintings of the other elements ma

In her defense, Hercules mortally wounds Nessus with his arrows, but with his last breath, the centaur tricks Deianira, promising her that if her husband wears his shirt, he will never look

This is a preliminary oil sketch for the ceiling of the ante-chamber of Ferdinand VII’s bedroom in the Royal Palace in Madrid.

The composition is that of a lost painting of the subject by Veronese, carried out for the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice, the appearance of which is known from an engraving published in 1691. A painted version of the same composition, from the School of Veronese, is in the Ellen Clarke Bertrand Library, Bucknell University, Lewisburg. The Lewisburg picture corresponds in all essentials to the design

A la derecha sentado sobre unas rocas y vestido de pastor, Paris, en su mano ofrece la manzana de oro a Venus, en pie, entre Juno, sentada de espaldas, y Minerva.El dibujo lleva una atribución a Graziani y otra a Novelli. Enlaza con el estilo de este último, pero una cierta debilidad en las líneas hacen pensar que pueda tratarse de una copia y no de un original del artista. (Texto extractado de Me
