About this artwork

The sharp contrast between the white steed and the black dragon delineates the triumph of good over evil. As its story and composition are drawn from religious sources, this print has the sentiment of a modern icon; however, alongside the airplanes and 20th-century armies depticted throughout the portfolio, it aquires a new, modern relevance. The dragon takes on a visual resemblance to the Prussian eagle.
