Shackleton and Hurley

From a photo of Ernest Shackleton, Antarctic explorer, and his photographer, Frank Hurley. They, along with 26 others, were stranded on the ice for about 18 months, trying to get back to civilization. “Though he was virtually fearless in the physical sense, he suffered an almost pathological dread of losing control of the situation….He felt he had gotten them into this situation and it was his responsibility to get them out". Acrylic on 16 x 20 inch canvas.
