General | Latest Info

Apples have been easily accessible and widely consumed since Antiquity. In fact, several European languages, including Greek, Latin, English and French, use the word Apple TO refer TO all Fruit. In the West, apples are seen as highly thirst and nourishing. They not only represent health, but are also guarantee of eternal youth and immortality. Over centuries, they have repeatedly fuelled pagan myths, biblical narrative, fairy tales and popular legends, and have become part of collective imagination as powerful and ambivalent symbol, associated with seduction and femininity. In Greek Mythology, both gods and mortals covet golden Apples mother Goddess Gaia Give as a wedding present to Hera and Zeus. They were kept in Garden guard by Hesperides, daughter of Goddess of night, and by Ladon, hundred-head dragon that never slept. These Apples promise immortality and anyone who eats them will never again experience hunger, thirst, suffering or illness. According to one version of the myth, Eris, Goddess of Discord, was furious at not having been invited TO wedding of Thetis and Peleus, so she took one of the apples and throw IT among the guests. Apple was inscribed with the words TO FAIREST and caused mayhem among the crowd. This event lead TO Judgement of Paris, TO end quarrel by choosing the most beautiful Goddess. Paris Give Golden Apple TO Aphrodite, Goddess of love, beauty and fertility, who, in return, promised TO give him the beautiful Helen of Troy, thereby triggering the Trojan War. In another Greek myth, Eurystheus commands Heracles TO fulfil twelve labours, one of which was TO steal these same Golden Apples by braving Ladon. In Celtic Mythology, portrayals of Lugh, one of the prominent gods, usually show him holding three Apples, signs of immortality, power and prosperity. In Snorris Edda, 13-century collection of Norse myths in prose form, Goddess Iunn is keeper of Apples of immortality, food of gods. Giant Jazi, forcibly takes her far away from Asgard, and this abduction causes premature ageing of gods. In Christian tradition, due to a shift in meaning in Vulgate, Apple tree represents the tree of knowledge and temptation, Fall of Man, when Adam and Eve bite into the Forbidden Fruit. In the popular oral tradition of Western fairy tales, Snow White naively bites into poison Apple, but her death, albeit temporary, is followed by resurrection. Apples have always been appreciated for their taste and nutritive qualities. Whether raw or cook, they hold an important place in Western diets, in sweet and sour dishes as well as in cakes and desserts. In addition, apples are said TO offer medicinal and cosmetic benefits. Medieval pomade was ointment made from mashed apples mixed with fat and used TO treat both skin and hair. Daily habits and popular sayings also indicate the medicinal virtues of Apples.

Derivative uses

Because of this, Roman goddess corresponding to Greek Eris was named Discordia. Also, in German and in Dutch, words are used a lot more often colloquially than in English, though in German colloquial form is not Apfel der Zwietracht but Zankapfel and rarely Erisapfel; Dutch is Twistappel. In Eixample district of Barcelona, there is block nickname in Spanish, La Manzana de La Discordia. The reason for this usage is that Manzana means both Apple and city block in Spanish. It was so named because it features four different interpretations of Modernisme architecture: Antoni Gaudi's Casa Batllo, Lluis Domenech I Montaner's Casa Lleo Morera, Josep Puig I Cadafalch's Casa Amatller, and Enric Sagnier's Casa Mulleras.

The Decision of Paris

Zeus, King of Gods, hosted the wedding of Peleus and Thetis. All Gods, goddesses and demi-Gods were invite, except for one, Eris, Goddess of strife / Discord, because they didnt want any trouble. Eris was furious at not being invited to this wedding, so to create trouble she threw a golden Apple, inscribed with words for fairest, onto the table. Immediately, three goddesses scramble to get this Apple and begin to quarrel. These three goddesses were:-Hera: queen of Gods and Goddess of marriage and childbirth-Athena: Goddess of wisdom and defensive warfare-Aphrodite: Goddess of Love and beauty. These goddesses asked Zeus to choose the fairest of them, but he was wise and knew that if he picked on of goddesses, he would receive hatred from other two, so he decide not to take part in fight and instead appoint Paris to decide. Paris could not decide which one of the women was more beautiful-as they were all striking. Women then began to offer him bribes:-Hera offered him political power and control of her kingdoms-Athena offered him valuable wisdom and military advice-Aphrodite offered him the most beautiful woman in the world: Helen of Sparta Paris was a lover rather than a fighter, so he accepted Aphrodites bribe and award her golden Apple Paris sneak into Helens house and stole her, and they elope together. Helen becomes Helen of Troy. However, King of Sparta wanted Helen back, so he raises Greek army and attacks Troy to get her back. Paris was killed in the battle of Troy. Greeks defeat Troy: and so it is said that Paris ' judgment of choosing Aphrodites bribe caused war and the downfall of Troy.

There are a number of sketches with some relation to picture in Hesperides sketchbook, though none for the whole composition. Prominent mountainous spur in the background also appear, With slight modifications, in Fall Of Rhine at Schaffhausen, shown at RA later same year, and in Vision Of Jacob's Ladder, perhaps begin at about this time but completely reworked later. It also appears in large unfinished watercolour of, perhaps, Great. Bernard Pass. Turner seems to have detached the motif from its particular locality and, as has been pointed out by Lawrence Gowing in an unpublished lecture, transforms detail of a clump of trees on spur into Guardian Dragon. No verses were included in the catalogue of this first exhibition of British Institution, but there is a related Ode to Discord in Verse Notebook belonging to CWM Turner: 'Discord, dire Sister Of Etherial Jove Coeval, hostile even to heavenly Love, unask'd at Psyche's bridal feast to share, Mad With neglect and envious Of fair, Fierce as noxious blast thou cleav'd skies and seek Hesperian Garden's golden prize. Guardian Dragon in himself host aw'd by presence slumberd at his post timid sisters With prophetic fire proffer fatal Fruit and fear'd thy wrathful ire With vengfull pleasure pleas'd Goddess heard of future woes: and then her choice prefer shining mischief to herself, She took Love felt wound and Troy's foundations shook. ' There are also versions of the first two lines in Windsor, Eaton sketchbook, which is usually dated c. 1807 but may well, because of its relationship to this picture exhibit early in 1806, have been begun a year or two earlier. Apple chose Discord and claim at bridal feast was eventually awarded by Paris.
