St George and the Dragon Series. No.7 - The Return by Sir Edward Coley BURNE-JONES, (originally) c1866, oil on canvas, Bristol City Museum, UK
In the mid-1860s Burne-Jones painted seven canvases illustrating the story of St George for the dining-room of the artist Myles Birket Foster’s house in Surrey. William Morris and Dante Gabriel Rossetti also worked there. Nearly thirty years later, the series was sold and Burne-Jones largely re-painted it, this painting was re-worked 1895. This over-painting is particularly noticeable in the faces, where outlines have been strengthened.
