In 1859, the American landscape painter Frederic Edwin Church traveled by ship to Newfoundland to observe icebergs. On the 160th anniversary of his expedition, After Icebergs presents a selection of sketches and studies made by Church that document his first-hand impressions of these majestic forms of floating ice.
