Judgement of Paris [1]

Judgement of Paris, dated 1515 or 1516, is an engraving by Italian engraver Marcantonio Raimondi, after a design of Raphael. A detail[2] of the engraving depicting river gods became the composition source for Édouard Manet when he painted the The Luncheon on the Grass.

The subject was more common in Northern Europe, although Raimondi's engraving, probably based on a drawing by Raphael, and using a composition derived from a Roman sarcophagus, was a highly influential treatment, which made Paris's Phrygian cap an attribute in most later versions.
