The Matterhorn is a mountain of the Alps, the 'Peak of the Meadows'. A peak that has fascinated naturalists and artists for centuries, for them an object of the most intense and continuous admiration.'..a spectacle of indescribable grandeur...an immense natural amphitheater, in the presence of these grand walls the mind is overwhelmed, not indeed that it is unable to contemplate the scene, but it staggers under the immensity of those objects which it contemplates.' William Brockedon 1825
I tried to capture this sentiment in my painting and unconsciously created a figure of contemplation at the summit, a feeling we can all relate to as we absorb the grandeur of the natural world.
This painting features on the front cover of the book 'Mountains and the German Mind - Translations from Gessner to Messner, 1541-2009' edited by Sean Ireton (University of Missouri), Caroline Schaumann (Emory University).
