The yacht 'Fox'
A portrait of the steam yacht 'Fox' which was bought by Lady Franklin in 1857 for an expedition to the Arctic. The 'Fox' was strengthened to resist polar ice before setting out on the privately funded expedition in search of Lady Franklin's husband Sir John Franklin. He had been missing for twelve years during his attempt to discover a sea route north of the American mainland. Following reports that the Inuit had seen Europeans on King William Island and the nearby mainland, the expedition aimed to rescue any survivors, retrieve relics, and establish if Sir John's expedition had achieved its mission.
