CATALOGUE NOTE
Will Ashton was one of the most successful Australian artists ofthe post-WWI period. Widely travelled and extensively exhibited inEurope, his French landscapes and Parisian street scenes wereparticularly popular. The present work is, however, a localsubject, one of a series of winter views in the Alps which theartist painted in the later 1920s, and which included paintingssuch as Kosciiusko and Smiggins' Camp, Kosciusko (both Art Galleryof New South Wales). Kosciusko won the Wynne Prize in 1930. Unlikethose unpopulated landscapes, the present work also provideds arecord of early alpine recreation, with a straggle of skiers shownin front of the then new and luxurious Koscuisko Chalet atCharlotte Pass.Describing Ashton's 'snowscapes', the artist's friend and colleagueHan Heysen wrote at the time that they 'contained that clarity oflight, precise and crisp handling, which gave them a distinctlyAustralian character and an interesting contrast to the snow scenesof Europe and England to which he has accustomed us.'11. Hans Heysen, 'Will Ashton's Paintings', Art inAustralia, 3rd series, no. 28, June 1929 (n.p.)
