St. Mario and the Dragon

Butt Johnson created this lovely depiction of the art icon St. George and the Dragon. It's presumably modeled after the one below, of which I can find no information. (via Ovablastic)

St. George and the Dragon was a very popular story around here when the kids were young.

I thought that it might be that, too, but when I looked up that altar piece, it turned out to be a different one. It's a pity because I like to be thorough with my art posts.

So the wikipedia photo is mislabeled? Would you consider reporting that? I got a wikipedia account for the express purpose of correcting a mistake in an old film plot, but I don't know anything about art.

John said...

Yes, it's a mistake. I haven't thought about correcting it. I don't feel terribly motivated to do so, I mean, it's not about Star Trek or anything important.

Divers and Sundry said...

That's why it's so important! Star Trek folks would know a mistake if they saw one. This poor mis-attributed piece of art may never find its rightful place. Sad, tragic state of affairs.
