Saint George Slaying the Dragon, 1470
Charged with excitement and bristling with spiky forms, Saint George Slaying the Dragon is one of Carlo Crivelli's masterpieces. What could be more dramatic than the contrast between the rearing horse, its head distorted with fear, and the tender saint, his eyes fixed on the dragon he is about to slaughter? Crivelli's saint is no robust hero, but a slim boy who must use all his might to wield his heavy sword.
