Painting "Naked Girl". Signed by K. Somov 1897.
In a horizontal tondo, a naked girl lies diagonally. A book doesn’t go in her head, she can`t concentrate on it. The peignoir somehow untied itself and the beauty of her naked body took possession of the girl. A mirror and a chocolate set complete the portrait of a young beauty. The sweetness and bliss of narcissism are the companions of this love alcove.
The Judgment of Paris is a mythological scene. The goddess of discord Eris, offended by the fact that she was not invited to the wedding feast of Peleus and Thetis, decided to take revenge on the gods and threw an apple with the inscription "Most Beautiful" to the feasting. Immediately between the three goddesses: the wife of Zeus Héra, the warrior Athena and the goddess of love Aphrodite - a dispute arose: to whom rightly belongs the apple? The goddesses turned to Zeus, but he refused to be a judge. Zeus gave the apple to Hermes and ordered to take the goddesses in the vicinity of Troy to the beautiful son of the king of Troy, Paris, who must choose the most beautiful of the three goddesses. Each of them began to convince Paris to give the apple to her, promising the young man great rewards. Hera promised Paris power over all Asia, Athena - military victories and glory. Paris gave the apple to Aphrodite, who promised to reward him with the love of any woman he chose.
