In this classic work, the princess in the background represents the church as a whole, with the lamb she is grasping representing the innocence and purity of the church. Saint George and his steed symbolise the triumph of good over evil as Saint George stares the beast down. Rubens further shows the contrast between good and evil with the dragon painted in relative darkness, with Saint George and the princess residing in the light.
We absolutely love the depth of colour and light vs dark contrast of this work. This square is finished with a border design of red, gold and black that works well with the tones in the painting.
