Drawing, Seascape with Iceberg
This is a Drawing. It was created by Frederic Edwin Church. We acquired it in 1917. Its medium is brush and oil paint on cardboard. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
Church’s hunt for icebergs led to frequent deviations from the ship’s planned course, in particular when they spotted what Noble describes as “a white pinnacle just pricking above the horizon.” In these sketches, Church accentuated the icebergs against vast, abstract expanses of sea.
This object was donated by Louis P. Church.
