Ou la Pomme de discorde entre les Jeunes Filles de la Rue St. Martin et celles de la Rue St. Denis.
Coloured etching in frame, dimensions of frame 280 x 335mm. 11 x 13╝". Unexamined out of frame; very rare.
A contemporary take on the story of the Golden Apple of Discord which Eris said she would give to the fairest at the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, sparking a dispute between Hera, Athena and Aphrodite. Paris, a Phrygian mortal, was called upon to judge the contest, and in this print Paris is an aeronaut who descends to arbitrate between the young women of the Rue St. Martin and the Rue St. Denis.
