Heemskerck and Barents Planning their Second Expedition to the Far North, Christoffel Bisschop, 1862

painting, h 63.4cm × w 82.0cm More details

The overwintering of Willem Barents and his crew on Nova Zembla in 1596-1597 appealed greatly to the popular imagination in the 19th century. This painting was therefore also part of the same historical gallery as the work by Bilders. Curiously, Bisschop did not depict the harsh winter ordeal on Nova Zembla, but rather the preparations for an earlier voyage.
