Happy St George's Day

Coxsoft Art couldn't let St George's Day pass without showing you another of Paolo Uccello's ridiculous dragons - love that curly tail - being slain by the patron saint of England: Saint George. This one is in the Musée Jacquemart-André, Paris. My favourite is in London's National Gallery. The rudimentary perspective is Uccello's major contribution to Western Art. Isn't it time we English were allowed a national holiday on St George's Day? Click the title link to sign a petition.
