Briton Riviere (1840-1920) was a painter best known for his animal subjects. Here he is at his easel, surrounded by animal skins and skeletons.
From his rich imagination came this "Saint George and the Dragon," which tells the story of the fight through the exhaustion of the hero, and the terrible price his horse had to pay.
