A popular medieval legend about Saint Margaret involves her miraculous escape after being swallowed alive by Satan disguised as a dragon. Here Margaret is shown holding the chains of a subdued dragon while blessing a donor’s coat of arms. The delicately painted features of the saint, carefully rendered costume, and charming depiction of bluebells at the lower right give a sense of realism and substance to the composition.
