Drawing the Mountains

Maison des artistes

Thursday 16 June 2022 – 5pm

Samivel embodies a universal image of the mountain through the variety of his work, while Rochette is considered the current master of the graphic mountain novel. What they have in common is a passion for mountaineering and the purity of high altitude lines. A tribute to Samivel, who passed away 30 years ago, and a warm festival welcome to Jean-Marc Rochette. He will be joined by two talented authors who have published innovative works in recent weeks. 


  • Jean-Marc Rochette (author and painter)
  • Simon Charrière who published with Hervé Dupie, Zian au Mont-Blanc (éditions Paulsen-Guérin)
  • Éric Savoldelli, illustrator and André-Vianney Espinasse, author of Lignes de vies (éditions des Étages).
  • Tribute to Samivel by Gilberte Mermoud (who initiated the Samivel Garden in Contamines) and Sophie Cuenot (journalist)
