The great glacier of Lauteraar, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The great glacier of Lauteraar, 1844. Creator: Unknown

The great glacier of Lauteraar, 1844. The Lauteraargletscher in the Bernese Alps, Switzerland. Glaciologist James David Forbes on the movement of glaciers: 'The common form of glacier is a river of ice fillingĀ a valley, and pouring down its masses into other valleys yet lower. It is not a frozen ocean, but a frozen torrent. Its origin or fountain is in the ramification of the higher valleys and gorges, which descend amongst the mountains, perpetually snow-clad. But what gives to a glacier its most peculiar and characteristic feature is, that it does not belong exclusively or necessarily to the snowy region...The very huts of the peasantry are sometimes invaded by this moving ice, and many persons now living have seen the full ears of corn touching the glacier, or gathered ripe cherries from the tree, with one foot standing on the ice'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V.

Suvorovs March through the Alps, 1799, (1899), (1939). Creator: Vasily Surikov

Suvorov's March through the Alps, 1799, (1899), (1939). In 1799 and 1780, General Alexander Suvorov (1729-1800) commanded a Russian army in campaigns against the French in Piedmont and Switzerland. Faced with defeat, he led his troops in an epic retreat across several Alpine passes, reminiscent of Hannibal. Vasili Surikov (1848-1916) visitied Switzerland to do research for the painting, also known as Suvorov Crossing the Alps in 1799, which was purchased by Tsar Nicholas II. Surikov is known for his historical paintings in the Realist style. He was a member of the Peredvizhniki, an artists cooperative. Painting in the collection of The State Russian Museum, St Petersburg, Russia. From "The Russian State Museum". [State Art Publishers, Moscow and Leningrad, 1939]
