    Arctic Images from the Turn of the Twentieth Century

    From the times of early exploration, the Arctic has excited the European imagination. Inspired by its land and people, artists have rendered the Arctic as a desolate region of austere and sublime beauty where stolid icebergs float in empty grey seas, and barren mountains rise imperiously from icy waters. Photography added exponentially to this cultural cache of imagery.

Photography added exponentially to this cultural cache of imagery.
