A journey to London today sourcing stock for our Spanish antiques business provided a brief window to visit The National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. Rooms 30 and 39 are home to the Spanish greats Murillo, Zurbarán, Velázquez and Goya. The picture of St Margaret of Antioch by Zurbarán 1630 was particularly striking. The story, told by a dragon (lower left corner), is that Margaret was swallowed whole by a monster but burst forth from it unharmed – hence her role as the patron saint of women in childbirth.
