More from the Southern Pole

Gregg just found these really great paintings and sketches. It's unusual to find so many pieces of work together on the internet. The following link details the naval expedition in 1955-56 and its two painters, Standish Backus (1910-1989) and Robert Charles Haun (1903-1975), who served as visual chroniclers. Much of the oil work was finished after the trip from sketches and photographs because of the extreme conditions. 


Anybody else who finds any other collections you find interesting let us know and we'll share them.
