Having picked up a pen to make a picture, everyone has already discovered it for themselves. Even though this does not seem to develop any so-called "art", there remains a decisive commonality with established artists: the work reflects an inner mood, a connection with the painted. Ferdinand Hodler, a Swiss painter who lived from 1853 to 1918, created a relationship with nature. The view of the mountain Grammont fascinated him, and he immortalized him in a painting of a size of 70.3 cm by 75 cm. This oil-on-canvas picture, realized in 1906, amazes the beholder and the observer, as the color components accurately reproduce the structure of the mountain. In addition, the painting's appearance is such that the impression arises that the sun shines down onto the Grammont. This luminosity creates a positive mood, which translates to the art lover and the art lover. Some may not know this mountain and would like some information about it. The 2172 meter high Grammont is located in the Swiss canton of Valais and is one of the Savoy Alps. To the southeast of it is the Lac de Tanay, in the north it falls steeply to the border town of Saint Gingolph on Lake Geneva. In the year when the painting Hodler was created, a building permission for a rack railway (which one could not know at the time: the project was not realized.) Was applied for the Grammont. Whether this caused Hodler to perpetuate this mountain again in its originality, remains speculation. Anyway, he's been working intensively on the Grammont. Its structure can be recognized exactly. Hodler plays with shadow and light. Different blue tones represent the ravines or the shady sides, while yellows and browns outlines the places reached by the sun. The offshore lake has a deeper blue color than the sky. This could lead to the conclusion that the waters as well as the Grammont itself have resistance. The changeability of the sky only changes them seemingly. The weather is changing, but the mountains and the lake remain, as in this magnificent landscape painting by Ferdinand Hodler. © Meisterdrucke
