Judgment of Paris

Alessandro Turchi Italian

Not on view

Alessandro Turchi enjoyed a prestigious career in Rome, where he took on the role of head of the Accademia di San Luca in 1637. This picture is characteristic of Turchi’s mature style in depicting historical scenes: monumental figures presented in a frieze-like arrangement and executed with soft, sfumato effects.
