There is a very appreciated category called "the painters of Mountain", very sought after by the collectors, like those of the "school of painters of Marine", a small circle of initiates, in which one classifies, well placed, Charles-Henry Contencin. The Mont-Blanc, is a source of inspiration, so much its abrupt sides drawn, are majestic. The painter makes the ascent vertiginous and at the same time possible, when the white coat slides on the slopes. We are in the ivory tones, which come, on the sunny hills, to melt in the bluish shade of a wadded glare... The sharp magic of the peaks operates, and attracts towards the summits. It gives to the vision of the immaculate field, its resolutely eternal aspect... Be careful, there will be a lot of people on the slopes, because there will be many people at the start of the summits (of the auction)... BG
