Western Art

In April 1913, at the urging of French art dealer Ambroise Vollard, a surprising collaboration – an artistic communion, one might say – arose between the elderly painter Auguste Renoir and the young sculptor Richard Guino. Guino was to model sculptures based on Renoir’s drawings or paintings. Renoir’s painting Judgment of Paris, exalting the most beautiful goddesses, has been recreated in high relief with the central figure, featured solo, becoming Venus Victorious holding the apple given to her by the shepherd Paris.
