Commander James Clark Ross (1800-1862)
This highly romanticized portrayal marks Ross's return from an expedition there in 1829-1833. During this voyage, he and his uncle, Sir John Ross, discovered the north magnetic pole, at that time located west of the Boothia Peninsula. In 1839-1843, Ross commanded the 'Erebus' and 'Terror' on one of the earliest Antarctic expeditions and was knighted on his return. The artist has paid considerable attention to detail and concentrated on the luxurious tactile quality of the fur and uniform.
