Description
Dating from the 18th century, important Carrara marble statue of Venus with apple. She is lasciviously sitting on a tree trunk, cross left leg, gently tilted look, she has the golden apple offered by Pâris. Venus triumph, here, in all its nakedness Pâris Judgment's. Indeed the story, taken from the Trojan Cycle, said that during wedding of Peleus and Thetis on Olympus, the gods were invited except Eris, Goddess of Discord. In revenge she threw them a golden apple with the inscription: "To the most beautiful" which was later called the "apple of discord". Three goddesses claim the fruit, Juno, Minerva and Venus. To put a stop to the dispute, Zeus ordered Hermes to take the goddesses on Mount Ida, on condition Pâris designate the winner. The young man finally gave the prize to Venus, goddess of love, who promised him the love of Helen. This fruit was therefore the origin of the Trojan War... Wear on the apple and restoration of the right arm. A sculpture of Venus with apple of the sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) exists at Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen. A second version is also in the Louvre and shows a similarity to our Venus exposed.
