I love comparison studies—whether one image inspires another, or the images develop along parallel lines. This version of St. George is by Walter Crane, from Book I of Spenser's Faerie Queene, published in the 1890s. This drawing predates the Harold Nelson drawing of the last post. Both images were undoubtedly inspired by many a painting of St. George prior to their times.
