Saint George Killing the Dragon - Bernat Martorell, 1434/35
Tempera on panel
61 1/4 x 38 5/8 in. (155.6 x 98.1 cm)
Art Institute of Chicago

In the second quarter of the 15th century, Bernat Martorell was the leading painter of Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia in northeastern Spain. Saint George was the patron saint of Catalonia, and Martorell’s vivid painting probably once formed the center of the altarpiece of the chapel of the Catalan government in its palace in Barcelona. The central image would have been flanked by smaller narrative panels, now in the Musée du Louvre, Paris; they illustrate the martyrdom of the saint in gruesome detail.

gildedhistory:

Aphrodite was frequently depicted in ancient sculptures wearing a distinct  hairstyle coined the “Aphrodite knot.” This knotted hairstyle was also featured, and particularly popular, on Greco-Roman women’s portrait busts from around 50 BC. The hair was simply separated into two sections and tied in a square knot on the top of the head.
