Created in 1979 by the master of the surreal, The Judgment of Paris is a reference to the Greek mythological tale of when Paris of Troy was asked to judge which of three goddesses, Hera, Athena or Aphrodite was the most fair. Paris chose Aphrodite as the fairest because she bribed him with a gift of the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen of Sparta. Paris stole Helen, bringing her with him to Troy. It was this event that brought on the great battle of the Greeks invading Troy for Helen’s return. This was the cause of the famed Trojan War.
