9783791342092: The Triumph of Painting

Executed with incredible precision, Ditsch's paintings convey the dizzying heights and serene grandeur of the mountains he has climbed and the awe-inspiring scenes of nature he has encountered. Interweaving the experience of nature and the creative process, his paintings transcend the photograph-like depictions of alpine scenery, lakes and the sea in Europe, North and South America. These paintings draw their energy from the Buenos Aires-born artist and mountaineer Ditsch's ability to infuse his work with his lovefor mountaineering and his own experience of the summits. When climbing a mountain and painting,A" he says in a conversation with his friend the famed mountaineer Reinhold Messner, I feel as if I'm in the same situation. Without any real concern for my own safety I submit myself to nature - In my art I also try to - perform a similar feat of strength, test the frontiers of possibility.A" Including essays in five languages, this edition features approximately one hundred and thirty color illustrations, thirty of which were not included in the previous edition, as well as three fold-out reproductions.
