With the current Facebook campaign to promote art in the form of paintings I'm discovering and being pointed at lots of interesting painters. However those trying to capture mountains are often cliche views lacking the empathy us climbers and adventurers enjoy with these wild places. I'm aware of some climbers who paint like Chris Parkin, but can anyone direct me to other great famous or obscure painters who have depicted mountains in a way that we can identify with?
In reply to kevin stephens: Jamie Hageman and Ginger Cain are too literal for my taste. Art should not be just tracing over photos but communicating what photos can't capture. I'm sure Cezanne would have done a brilliant job if he had endured a cold mountain bivy but like most artists he would have just viewed them as backdrop to a more immediate foreground.

I have a few by local (Leek) landscape artist David Hunt, including one of Hen Cloud, but maybe Gareth Buxton is more what you are looking for. Acrylics, almost abstract, but very atmospheric of moorland tops and edges:
