  • This pendant to P474 depicts the Judgment of Paris in which Paris judges Venus to be the most beautiful of the goddesses, partly in response to her bribe that she would help him win the love of the most beautiful woman in the world. Both pictures were copied from a painting by Boucher (Paris, private collection).
