From 15th December 2018 to 8th May 2019,
the Hameau Albert 1er exhibit the watercolors of Alexandre Galperine, dear friend to the Carrier family.
Discovery of a painter passionate about the Chamonix Valley, who wanted to dedicate his exhibition to Jean-Pierre Devouassoux, who was one of the emblematic guides of Argentière.
Passed by the Beaux-Arts at the same time that he made law. Originally from Russia, he feels good in Chamonix and gets married there. According to him, "The mountain has something incomprehensible because the contrasts are simultaneous: there is beauty and threat; Life and death. Two spots. The mountain can not be painted. It is not the subject. He paints a pictorial language, some spots and some features. The three primary colors reinvented by the mountain - some pale blue, some pink and some yellow - make that there is never a festival as beautiful as the evenings on the Drus or Mont Blanc. How to paint this? Three spots and some signs. "
