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)

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]
