A whaler off a mountainous coast
Compositionally, this painting of a whaler off a mountainous coast, relates to another picture by John Wilson Carmichael (1800-68) in the NMM, the ' &Erebus & and &Terror & in the Antarctic' (BHC1215). Here, though, just one ship represents the only human presence in an environment of rough peaks, glaciers, mountains and jagged rocks. The ship is portrayed tossed in the waves as it navigates a passage though a sound. In the foreground is Carmichael's interpretation of the wildlife in such an environment. Whales send up jets of water in the foreground to the left.
