About this artwork

Paolo Uccello has brought to life one of the most well known legends of the medieval period, that of Saint George defeating the dragon. The saint is seen thrusting a spear into the dragon's head, the weird shape of which matches the entrance of its cave, and an elegant princess already has the beast on a leash. This artwork is believed to have been commissioned for a private residence, given it was created using oil on canvas, a relatively inexpensive medium. The print is colour coordinated with the original painting and received the National Gallery's approval. Every purchase contributes to the museum's ongoing work.

About the artist

The Florentine artist Paolo di Dono, more famously known as Uccello (c1397 -1475), had a deep passion for birds, hence his nickname. He cut his teeth in the workshop of Lorenzo Ghiberti from 1404 to 1407 and by 1415, Uccello started his journey as an independent master. Around 1430, he embarked on one of two fresco cycles for Santa Maria Novella's Chiostro Verde. His work, such as the famed fresco of Sir John Hawkwood in Florence's Duomo, reveals his keen interest in perspective and geometric representation of nature, dating back to 1436. Over the decades from the 1440s to 1460s, Uccello's style fused late Gothic with the cutting-edge Florentine Renaissance. His work at San Miniato al Monte shows clear influences from Donatello's sculpture and Alberti's spatial theories. His creative influence touched great artists like Piero della Francesca and Leonardo da Vinci. In 1475, Uccello died in Florence and was laid to rest in Santo Spirito.
