In this video from the National Gallery of Art Children’s Video Tour, art lovers of all ages are introduced to Saint George, as depicted by Raphael in his painting “Saint George and the Dragon.” This action-packed painting seems frozen in time, as the brave knight, dressed in shiny metal armor, thrusts his lance towards a dragon, pinning it to the ground. The dragon, fighting for his life, grabs the lance with one paw, swirls its long neck towards the knight, and opens its mouth to reveal sharp teeth! What do you think happens next? On view in the West Building, Main Floor, Gallery 20. http://www.nga.gov/fcgi-bin/tinfo_f?object=28
