The dragon, fighting for his life, grabs the lance with one paw, swirls its long neck towards the knight, and opens its mouth to reveal sharp teeth! What do you think happens next? On view in the West Building, Main Floor, Gallery 20.</p> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Dragon European Painting For Kids Painting Raphael Renaissance Art St. George Learning to Look National Gallery of Art, Washington cb27dd7fdf508079 Wed, 21 Sep 2011 21:57:22 +0000 s-sarraf 8803 at
