!!References * In one episode of ''Series/{{Poirot}}'', the Judgement of Paris was the key to unveiling the murderer. When a young playwright mentioned the subject, the widow of the murdered man mistakenly thought he was talking about the fashion judgement of the city. This struck him as odd, since at a previous meeting he had discussed Trojan myth with her at length (it turned out she had a double).

* Rubens ([[BigBeautifulWoman that guy]]) was very fond of this one. He painted it in 1625, 1636 and 1639. In the earliest, Aphrodite gets a choir of angel like beings to adorn her as the winner. In all three at least one of the losers is turned away from the viewer which helps to show the dejection.

Aphrodite was the eventual winner and goddess of beauty, love and lust. She won by bribing Paris with the most beautiful woman in the world. Correspondingly, she is often shown being the happier of three (the other two will be looking away or standing apart) and she will be attended by her son Eros/Cupid. The apple may be in hers, Hermes or Paris's hand.

* Jan Both and Cornelis van Poelenburgh collaborated on one. Van Poelenburgh did the figures while [[WhosOnFirst Both]]) did the landscape. This may have influenced the decision to set the scene further from the viewer, giving Both's landscape more prominence. Thus, the figures are less detailed and have little to signify them as deities or specific individuals, though there is still one goddess turned away and a child clinging at Aphrodite's leg. Hermes is not apparent, though a crowned older bearded figure (presumably Zeus) is in the picture. Hera is also depicted as a more mature woman.
