‘The Great St. Bernard Pass with a view of the Weisshorn from the Niffel’

George Barnard was a prolific artist whose major panoramic work identified the appeal and challenge of the Alps. He was a professor of art, a lithographer and a writer of books about drawing and Alpine nature. He was one of a group of middle class men who founded the Alpine Club at a meeting in the Ashley Hotel, London in 1857, popularising mountaineering in the Alps during the Golden age of alpinism 1854-1865. The Club continues to this day.

A similar but smaller less ambitious version of this view was sold at Dobiaschofsky (auctioneers) in Bern, Switzerland, on 14th May 2014, for 2600CHF hammer (£1,742).

Signed & dated 1876
