When models aren’t available, my go-to solution is the Barbie doll. The Judgement of Paris is a traditional subject but here I’ve used Barbies of different races for the three goddesses (I still want to do this with live models). The background pieces are by Rubens on this and similar subjects. His Satyr is reflected in the compact where a gold-painted cherry serves as the awarded apple. The makeup serves as a reminder of the obsession over superficial female beauty.
