Return of the Penguins, c1908, (1909). Artist: George Marston

Return of the Penguins, c1908, (1909). Anglo-Irish explorer Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) made three expeditions to the Antarctic. During the second expedition, 1907-1909, he and three companions established a new record, Farthest South latitude at 88° S, only 97 geographical miles (112 statute miles, or 180 km) from the South Pole, the largest advance to the pole in exploration history. Members of his team also climbed Mount Erebus, the most active volcano in the Antarctic. Shackleton was knighted by King Edward VII for these achievements. He died during his third and last oceanographic and sub-antarctic expedition, aged 47. Illustration after an original painting by George Marston (1882-1940) the expedition artist, from The Heart of the Antarctic, Vol. I, by E. H. Shackleton, C.V.O. [William Heinemann, London, 1909]

Return of the Penguins, c1908

EDITORS COMMENTS
is a captivating print that captures the essence of Anglo-Irish explorer Ernest Shackleton's second expedition to the Antarctic. This remarkable artwork by George Marston showcases the resilience and beauty of these incredible creatures in their natural habitat. During this historic expedition, Shackleton and his team accomplished an extraordinary feat by reaching Farthest South latitude at 88° S, coming within a mere 97 geographical miles from the elusive South Pole. This achievement marked a significant milestone in exploration history and solidified Shackleton's place among legendary explorers. The illustration also depicts another daring accomplishment of this expedition - climbing Mount Erebus, one of Antarctica's most active volcanoes. The juxtaposition between the icy landscape and the vibrant presence of penguins creates a visually striking composition that evokes both awe and admiration. George Marston skillfully brings this momentous journey to life through his masterful use of color and detail. His artistic interpretation beautifully conveys not only the harshness but also the allure of Antarctica's frozen wilderness. This print serves as a poignant reminder of Shackleton's indomitable spirit, bravery, and unwavering determination to push boundaries in pursuit of scientific knowledge. It pays homage to his legacy as an explorer who fearlessly ventured into uncharted territories while fostering understanding about our planet's most remote regions. As we gaze upon "Return of the Penguins" we are transported back in time to witness firsthand Shackleton's extraordinary achievements amidst nature's harshest conditions.
