Crocodile “Staying on Top”, oil on canvas

120 x 46 cm

From the collection of the Atelier Fritz Hug

Creation year


The picture is remarkable for several reasons: first, there is the special perspective. You are looking at the crocodile parallel to the surface of the water, so to speak; only the nose, eye area and dorsal shields poke through the surface, the body can be seen, somewhat blurred, through the water. Secondly, there is the text, ” staying on top”, an encouragement from the artist to himself because he was suffering from depression at the time. And thirdly, it is quite simply an exceptionally good painting.
