Edward Theodore Compton, AC member, pioneer alpinist and painter lived at a time when the Alps were being explored and many of the great routes were being opened. Nine of the club's Compton paintings are being exhibited in the lecture room at Charlotte Road until mid December. In the interests of conservation, these paintings are rarely seen so this opportunity to see some of the club's best paintings is not to be missed.
