1933-Z

In The Fall of the Saints we see seven figures and a naked women in a dizzying fall. Floating and free-falling figures often feature in Frits Van den Berghes work. They represent our uncertainty in a world that offers us less and less to hold onto.The work is probably linked to the growing social unrest around 1930. For this painting Van den Berge did a preliminary study in oils and a drawing in Indian ink, both of which are also in the museum collection.
