An Original Oil on Canvas by Alexandre Calame

“Alexandre Calame was not only the most important Swiss Landscape painter of the early nineteenth century but the first artist to dedicate himself to depicting the Swiss Alps with topographical accuracy and from first-hand experience. Calame enjoyed international success during the nineteenth century and by the end of his life over three hundred pupils had passed through his studio in Geneva.

In 1835 he went on his first study trip to the Bernese Oberland, famous for its spectacular valleys and would spend nearly every summer in the alps for the next twenty five years.

This oil study of the Jungfrau and the Monch was painted looking south from the village of Unterseen near Interlaken in September 1852.

On the left of the composition the shoulder of the Schynige Platte plunges down into the valley floor at Zweilütschinen where the valley divides; one branch of the valley leads along the Lauterbrunnen and the other up to Grindelwald.

Calm was a late Romantic, ever aware of the transience and feeling of the moment whose words from a letter to his wife offer a lasting interpretation of his landscapes:

’Nothing elevates the soul as much as the contemplation of these snowy peaks…when, lost in their immense solitude, alone with God, one reflects on man’s insignificance and folly’ ” William Mitchell, Peaks & Glaciers 2016, pp 14.
