This painting was formerly attributed to Antonio Verrio. Before the siege of Troy, Vulcan made impenetrable armour for Achilles. This painting and another, 'The Judgement of Paris', are large fragments salvaged from the ceiling and wall decoration of the hallway of no.15 Queen Square, Bristol. The property, originally owned by a middle class merchant, was probably constructed in the second decade of the eighteenth century and was demolished in 1912.
