‘In the Hold’, David Bomberg, c.1913–14 | Tate

Artwork page for ‘In the Hold’, David Bomberg, c.1913–14 on display at Tate Britain. The subject of this painting is the hold of a ship, in which dock workers are handling heavy freight. However, Bomberg has divided the canvas into a grid of squares that are themselves divided. The effect of this is to shatter form, transforming the scene into a kinetic pattern of shape and dazzling colour. Though the image has become hard to decipher, the fragmented composition expresses the energy of men at work in an industrial environment.
Lit: Roger Fry in The Nation, 14 March 1914; T.E.
