Footnotes

  • "This beautiful study was secured in the summer, after the break-up of the ice in McMurdo Sound. It was made at mid-night, by the light of the Midnight Sun, which in these regions is then nearly as high at 12 p.m. as at noon. A part of the ice-foot is seen, and in the distance, some stranded icebergs". No. 96 Fine Art Society Exhibition catalogue.
