      While Henry Pearson’s witty and meticulous Judgment of Parts with Lagonda seems to be a light-hearted illustration in story-book pastels, there is an ominous black heavy block hovering in the sky while Paris as a shepherd makes up his mind, evaluating cars and women. In November , Lester Bowles Pearson, then External Affairs Minister and later Prime Minister of Canada, secured the creation by the United Nations of its first international peacekeeping force, an achievement which won its author the Nobel Prize for Peace.
