Carlo Crivelli. Saint George and the Dragon. 1470. Berenson described it to Mrs. Gardner as "more woderful than any Japanese lacquer... drawn as if by lightning" before he bought it for her in 1897. Though little is known of Saint George, who is here portrayed as a medieval knight, his traditional role is dragon slayer and protector of a virgin. He is the patron saint of England. He was martyred in Palestine probably before the time of Constantine.
