Gift of The Cleveland Art Association 1936.377
In the 1930s one of the most popular departments at the Cleveland School of Art (now Cleveland Institute of Art) was enameling. Students translated ideas of color and composition that they were learning in painting and ceramics to the application of glass powder enamels on copper, akin to Aitken's depiction of Saint George slaying a very demanding dragon. Working in a lighthearted style, Aitken was among the most prolific and accomplished student artisans to find commercial success in this medium.
