Historically, Newfoundlanders used to travel every year to Labrador to fish, curing their catch in encampments and bringing it home at the end of the season. Although it was a source of life with its rich fish stocks, this annual adventure was fraught with danger. This image is an epic visual narrative documenting the tragic loss of a schooner, with the men escaping in a small boat into a dangerous sea full of ice - yet all around them is the beauty of a velvet starry night and the drama of the sculpted forms of icebergs. In contrast to the dilemma of the men, the whale floats in the deep, far away from the troubles of fragile man on the surface of its vast world. With its exquisite detail, deft capturing of the motion of fire and sea foam and cross section of sky to ocean deep, this print is a tour de force of Blackwood's etching ability.
