        Duerer, Albrecht (1471-1528). Medium: tempera on panel. St.George is depicted carrying a banner with the cross of Saint George and holding down the defeated dragon; considered to be the earliest occasion on which an artist is known to have used the facial features of a donor in depicting a saint; painting commissioned by Stephan and Lukas for the Church of Saint Catherine in Nuremberg, perhaps after the safe return of Stephan from a pilgrimage to Jerusalem in 1498; Provenance: Alte Pinakothek, Munich, Germany. Photographic rights held by The Bridgeman Art Library.
