'The Fighting Temeraire', 1839. Artist: JMW Turner Featured Print

'The Fighting Temeraire', 1839. Artist: JMW Turner

'The Fighting Temeraire', 1839. The 98-gun ship 'Temeraire' became known as the 'Fighting Temeraire' after its role in Nelson's victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The ship remained in service until 1838 when she was decommissioned. The painting was thought to represent the decline of Britain's naval power. The 'Temeraire' is shown travelling east, away from the sunset, to evoke a sense of loss. Original work found in The National Gallery Collection. From World Famous Paintings edited by J Grieg Pirie [W.& G. Foyle Ltd., London, 1938.]

'A View North, Towards The Dying Sun, in March', c1908, (1909). Artist: Unknown

'A View North, Towards The Dying Sun, in March', c1908, (1909). Winter in the Southern Hemisphere, as the Sun disappears for months on end. Anglo-Irish explorer Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) made three expeditions to the Antarctic. During the second expedition, 1907-1909, he and three companions established a new record, Farthest South latitude at 88°S, only 97 geographical miles (112 statute miles, or 180 km) from the South Pole, the largest advance to the pole in exploration history. Members of his team also climbed Mount Erebus, the most active volcano in the Antarctic. Shackleton was knighted by King Edward VII for these achievements. He died during his third and last 'oceanographic and sub-antarctic' expedition, aged 47. Illustration from The Heart of the Antarctic, Vol. I, by E. H. Shackleton, C.V.O. [William Heinemann, London, 1909]

'Iridescent Clouds: Looking North from Cape Evans', 1911, (1913). Artist: Edward Wilson Featured Print

'Iridescent Clouds: Looking North from Cape Evans', 1911, (1913). Artist: Edward Wilson

'Iridescent Clouds: Looking North from Cape Evans', 1911, (1913). The final expedition of British Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott (1868-1912) left London on 1 June 1910 bound for the South Pole. The Terra Nova Expedition, officially the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913), included a geologist, a zoologist, a surgeon, a photographer, an engineer, a ski expert, a meteorologist and a physicist among others. Scott wished to continue the scientific work that he had begun when leading the Discovery Expedition to the Antarctic in 1901-04. He also wanted to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole. Scott, accompanied by Dr Edward Wilson, Captain Lawrence Oates, Lieutenant Henry Bowers and Petty Officer Edgar Evans, reached the Pole on 17 January 1912, only to find that the Norwegian expedition under Amundsen had beaten them to their objective by a month. Delayed by blizzards, and running out of supplies, Scott and the remainder of his team died at the end of March. Their bodies and diaries were found eight months later. From Scott's Last Expedition, Volume I. [Smith, Elder & Co., London, 1913]
