An Original Oil on Panel by Jacques Fourcy

“A native Savoyard and a true peintre-alpiniste, Force’s work erred towards drama rather than atmosphere. Despite wartime injuries he was the longest active member of the Paris based Sociéte des Peintres de Montagne, exhibiting every year from 1925 to 1990. Fourcy tended to depict bright, sunny days in the Alps and was, in every sense, a ‘colourist’ ho excelled at high altitude scenery. His was an unusual technique and like the older French peintre-alpiniste, Charles-Henri Contencin, Fourcy learnt to paint by himself.

This fine view of the north-east face of les Courtes is a perfect example of his ability to develop a sense of distance and awe in his paintings.

The use of a palette knife throughout meant he could create blank areas smoothed over paint to depict the snowfields and couloirs and, crucially, to heighten the impact of the shadows of the rocky needles in the middle ground.

Les Courtes rise up 3856 meters at their highest point and form part of a chain of mountains that run from the Aiguille du Triolet to the south extending northwards to the majestic Aiguille Verte. The long unbroken high mountain ridge straddles the Glacier du Taléfre on the Mont Blanc facing side and the Glacier d’Argentière on the eastern side.” William Mitchell, Peaks & Glaciers 2016, pp 7.
