“Le Cavalier Saint Georges”, 1924, I understand that this woodcut was published in Paris by the Sociéte de la Gravure sur Bois Originale in 1929 in a series of fifty-three woodcut illustrations to Francis de Miomandre’s (aka François Félicien Durand) “Le Patriarche”
Woodcut on cream wove paper.

Lettered in plate along lower edge: (left) “1924”; (right) “HB [ligature initials] routelle”.

I am selling this visually arresting image of St George on horseback about to engage in battle with a cave-dwelling dragon who has been disturbed from its meal of the local king’s daughter, for the total cost of AU$179 (currently US$114.81/EUR115.20/GBP98.84 at the time of this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.
