The artist Myles Birket Foster commissioned seven paintungs from Burne Jones on the theme of St George and the Dragon. These were for his dining room at his house in Surrey which he had designed himself in 1863. BJ's assistanmt Charles Fairfax Murray seems to have helped on these and BJ retouched them before they were exhibited at the Munich International Exhibition in 1897 - winning the Gold Medal.
