Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

The peaks of Monte Rosa, Liskamm and Castor as seen from the summit of Pollux. The mountains in this picture represent some of the highest glaciated terrain in Switzerland and straddle the frontier between Italy. They are capped with a covering of snow all year round and can be skiied in the summer months. This painting was made as a response to a visit the artist made to climb the mountains in this picture in 2012. Whilst on this trip Alexander was given the chance to climb with world-renowned mountain guides in Zermatt. He successfully summated Monte Rosa, Switzerland’s highest peak, Castor, Pollux, and the Briethorn. The expedition was awared as first prize to Alexander for winning the Mountain Tracks Photography Prize in 2012. The expedition also successfully raised a large sum for Cancer Research UK.The Painting is part of an on going series of alpine peaks.
