Artist's description:

This painting shows the judgement of Paris, which happened during a banquet for the Olympic gods. To avoid trouble, the goddess of discord was not invited. This angered her, she invaded the banquet and threw in a golden apple, as a price for beauty. The youth Paris now had to judge which goddess was the most beautiful of all and he chose Aphrodite. His choice was rewarded by Aphrodite with the gift of Helena, the wife of king Menelaos. When Paris and Helena eloped together, the king and his men went after them and this started the Trojan war.
In this painting I have concentrated on that fateful moment: Paris handing over the price to Aphrodite. I chose to paint only the most essential part of the story: both their hands and the golden apple, set against a clear blue sky.
