The strains in his own personality led him to suffer from bouts of intense depressions in later life, when his spirits would suddenly plummet to depths as gloomy as the lowest recesses of the gorge itself. So it is scarcely surprising that Bomberg's Ronda paintings often thrive on the tensions between the defensive fastness of the buildings and their proximity to the fissure running through their midst. Sometimes he saw Ronda as a paradigm of strength, an invulnerable structure carved out of the austere rocky bluff which support it...But in the most complex of his pictures, Ronda's resolute sturdiness is welded so vigorously to the threat of impermanence that we can no longer be sure where stability ends and vertigo begins. Both extremes are locked in a prodigious balance, as if resolving – for the moment, at least – a similar conflict within Bomberg's own attitude to life.' (Richard Cork, David Bomberg, Yale University Press,New Haven and London, 1987, p.209)

Lot number: 233
Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
David Bomberg (1890-1957) The Moor's Bridge, Ronda signed and dated 'Bomberg 35' (lower right) and signed again and inscribed 'Royal Academy Summer Exhibition No. 3/The Moors Bridge/Ronda/David Bomberg/41 Queens Gate Mews/Gloucester Road/Kensington/SW7.' (on the artist's label attached to the reverse) oil on canvas 20 x 26 in. (50.4 x 66 cm.) Bomberg's productive second visit to Spain resulted in such rich and successful canvases that he proposed to travel from Cuenca, Santander and Santillana in the north, to Ronda in the south. In June 1934, Bomberg first enlisted the support of the dealer Alfred Willey who the artist hoped could make further sales to the collectors in England who had admired his earlier Spanish landscapes of Toledo, and eventually he advanced the sum of £50 (made up of £25 each from Asa Lingard and Arthur Crossland, the Bradford merchants) to make the journey possible. The Bomberg family had settled in Ronda by the end of 1934, and stayed on until the following June, during which time his daughter Diana was born. The family had a harsh existence, living hand to mouth, as more money from England proved not to be forthcoming. This austerity brought about a productivity and a desire to work quickly, which resulted in bold landscapes that celebrated the majesty of the scenery, often painted at dusk or at night by candlelight. The dramatic landscape of the city, 750 metres above sea level and split by the Guadalevin river and a dramatic gorge, rendered it, in Bomberg's view: 'the most interesting of the towns of Southern Spain', with its 'extraordinary view of the amphitheatre of mountains by which it is surrounded', with a 'gorge - a stupendous rent 250-300 ft wide & 400 ft deep' (the artist, quoted in R. Cork, op. cit., p. 207). The present work depicts the Moor's Bridge, or Puente Romano, over the Tajo Gorge, one of three bridges which link the town. The other two are the Old Bridge or the Puente Viejo, and the New Bridge, Puente Nuevo, which was completed in the eighteenth century (see R. Cork, op. cit., pp. 204-213).

Description:
David Bomberg (1890-1957) The Bathers, Tent Family watercolour 21 ½ x 19 ½ in. (54.6 x 49.5 cm.) Executed in 1920. A note from Dinora Davies-Rees of the Bomberg Estate stated this work was from the Strolling Players series. The title, The Bathers, Tent Family was often used by the artist during this period. He knew several of these families who lived in tents near the river in London's East End. They were poor vagrants and Bomberg found their way of life an interesting subject.
