Presented by Gaudel de Stampa in the frame of « Berlin-Paris »

 

 

In his exhibition, Zénith, at Gallery Kamm, Dove Allouche, presents a series of drawings and heliogravures made in 2009.

 

Three ink and lead pencil drawings (70 x 100 cm) are inspired by the heliograved illustrations of Haute Montagne, a book published in 1931 by the alpinist Pierre Dalloz.
