While we were in London in 2006 (a 10 hour layover on our way to Germany), Johnny, his mom Annette and his step-father Charlie and I stopped by the National Gallery for a quick - much too quick - visit. One of the paintings we saw was Tintoretto's "Saint George and the Dragon", painted inn 1555. It remains one of my favorite paintings by the Old Masters.
