An Original Oil on Panel by Jacques Fourcy

“A native Savoyard and a true peintre-alpiniste Fourcy’s work erred towards drama and sheer scale rather than atmosphere. Despite wartime injuries he was the longest active member of the Paris based Société des Peintres de Montagne, exhibiting every year from 1925 to 1990. Fourcy painted this panorama of the Jungfrau from the side of Männlichen-Gipfel at 2,343 metres, perched above the villages of Grindelwald and Wengen.

The smaller rocky summits of Tschuggen and Lauberhorn in the foreground are rendered in vibrant colours and shadows to make an even stronger contrast with the distant peaks over the valley. The top of the Jungfrau Massif captures the mid-morning sun as a mist rises and, far off to the right, the Breithorn rears up at the end of the Lauterbrunnen valley.



In both his highly accomplished, often large format watercolours, and his oil paintings, Fourcy tended to depict bright, sunny days in the Alps and was, in every sense, a ‘colourist’ who excelled at high altitude scenery. Nonetheless, his topographical accuracy in his pictures and knowledge of the French and Swiss Alps was undisputed.” William Mitchell, Peaks & Glaciers 2015 pp 12.

Painted in oil onto board, this depiction of the Jungfrau as seen from Männlichen was painted by Jacques Fourcy and is signed. It measures 50 x 100 cm.
