Saint George and the Dragon


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description Equestrian statuettes by Francesco Fanelli were particularly popular among the British nobility. Their dramatic and dynamic qualities capture a sense of movement. With them, Fanelli introduced the dramatic, dynamic qualities of Italian baroque sculpture to an English audience. St. George was the patron saint of England, and later 17th-century inventories of collections show that this model had great appeal for aristocratic collectors.
