Vintage print of painting by Egyptian artist Saad Kamel (1924- 2012) depicting St. George and the dragon. We have confirmed via the administrator of Mr. Kamel's Facebook page that the name of the painting is "St. George and His Horse" and dates from 1972, the original having been larger and originally released as a series of numbered prints. The print was difficult to photograph, resulting in the colors appearing somewhat flat. The last photo, bottom row, shows two versions of the same shot, the one on the right enhanced in an attempt to show some of the texture and dimension. We have examined the print outside of its frame and found that it was done on a thin sheet of glossy, dark-rose or mauve paper, then glued onto a heavier buff-color paper; the image is done in two different tones of gold. Manually signed by the artist just below the print, on the bottom left in Latin script, and on the bottom right in Arabic characters. The style is reminiscent of Byzantine and Coptic art, not surprising, as Cairo is home to The Coptic Museum which houses the largest collection of Egyptian Christian artifacts in the world. The frame is made of hardwood painted black with gold highlights and has a hanger on the back. The paper dust cover is tattered.

APPROX. MEASUREMENTS:
Frame: 8 1/2 x 7 1/2
Panting: 5 3/8 x 4 3/4 in.

CONDITION: Very good vintage condition; suitable for gift giving once paper dust cover is replaced.

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE: Everything we sell at AlegriaCollection is vintage, meaning that it's at least 20 years old, often much older. Consequently, most of our items show evidence of previous use and, in general, this is viewed as adding to the aged character of a piece. We make every effort to accurately describe any flaws and encourage you to carefully read the description, particularly when purchasing vintage as a gift.
