    About this item

    This is a large magnificent original 20th Century Vintage Oil on Canvas Landscape Painting depicting a rural French treelined lake scene with calm waters, towering tree trunks, and a vibrant green woodland in the distance.

    Attributed to Fr Martin Haigh (1922-2015) Monk of Ampleforth Abbey, North Yorkshire, and associate of Sir John Hunt, leader of the British Mount Everest Expedition in 1953.

    Fr Martin Haigh was born in London in 1922 and educated at Ampleforth College. He joined the monastic community in September 1940 and was ordained a priest on 17 July 1949.

    For more than thirty years Fr Martin had a wide-ranging variety of roles in Ampleforth College: he taught Art and French from 1947-1981; he was a Games Master from 1948-1963; and Housemaster of St Bede’s House from 1963-1977.

    He will be forever associated with two special events in 1953: he sent to Sir John Hunt, leader of the Everest Expedition, a small crucifix blessed by Pope Pius Xii, asking that it be placed on the summit of Mount Everest; and he started the annual Ampleforth Lourdes Pilgrimage with the then Fr Basil Hume, a pilgrimage of which he was Director until 1987.

    Sixty years later and into his nineties, Fr Martin was still giving presentations to College students about the Everest crucifix placed on the summit by Edmund Hilary. "When [the real] history of the world comes to be read", Fr Martin had written to Sir John Hunt, "the day when men climbed to the very summit of the earth and left there the sign and symbol of our faith will rank as one of the very great days in the history of the world".

    The exceptional piece is, apparently, signed by Haigh just beneath the wooden frame stretcher, however, we can not visibly see a signature and therefore the work is sold as 'Attributed'' to the artist.

    It is a beautiful image and the work is offered in first-class original condition.
