In his treatment of the figure he uses distortion, this time as an expression of extreme emotion. There are some twenty studies in the series; this, one of the largest, shows a woman flung back by the impact of an explosion. Both the force of the composition and the texture of the bronze indicate the agony of the subject, a symbol of all innocent victims of violence.
