JEAN-MARC ROCHETTE AILEFROIDE, ALTITUDE 3954, Casterman 2018 Original plate no. 93 accompanied by its preparatory stage in India ink and wash, and its blue coloring in inks, enhanced with pastel. Signed. Indian ink and graphite on paper 42 × 56 cm (16.54 × 22.05 in.) Preparatory stage: 29.6 × 41.8 cm Things get serious for Jean-Marc Rochette and his friend Sempé. After a few runs in the Vercors, the tandem tackled their first real route in the Oisans: the famous Dibona, a granite needle over three thousand meters high. Guaranteed thrills and extreme concentration for the two novice climbers. With this composition, I wanted to put the reader in the place of the climbers, to feel the apprehension of these two little guys from Grenoble, who have nothing of the body-built Tarzans, in front of this steep and smooth wall, where they can hurt themselves. J.-M.R.
