HMS 'Erebus' in the Ice, 1846

This painting refers to HMS 'Erebus's' Arctic venture under the command of Sir John Franklin in 1845. For Franklin's last journey she had been fitted with a steam engine and a screw propeller and was accompanied by HMS 'Terror'. In 1848 both vessels were abandoned in the ice. In this painting Musin shows the vessel surrounded by icebergs, but still in open water. A gloomy sky is only allowing some sunlight unto the scene, causing a stage-like effect in the composition. In the foreground the ship's crew are busy moving smaller craft across the ice.
