Ruggiero Delivering Angelica by Arnold Böcklin (1873). Just look at that orc! It’s got to be the prettiest fine art dragon ever painted. I love how it seems unfazed by the knight trotting up, and even Angelica seems awfully casual about being held hostage by a dragon.

That said, if you liked this don’t see the sequel painting with the dragon handily beheaded.
