HMS 'Erebus' passing through the chain of bergs, 1842
This painting captures a dramatic scene from Rear-Admiral Sir James Clark Ross's Antarctic expedition of 1839-1843. Ross was given command of HMS 'Erebus' and HMS 'Terror' to carry out a magnetic survey in the Antarctic region. The expedition resulted in various discoveries, including the area subsequently known as the Ross Ice Barrier.
