Vi­sions of an epic jour­ney

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

HE pho­tog­ra­phy of Her­bert Ponting and the wa­ter­colours of Ed­ward Wil­son will be re­united for the first time since the two men were part of Capt Scott’s fate­ful ex­pe­di­tion to the Antarc­tic more than a cen­tury ago. The two po­lar ex­plor­ers in­tended to hold a joint ex­hi­bi­tion on their re­turn, but only Ponting sur­vived the ter­ri­ble con­di­tions. ‘Vi­sions of the Great White South’ is open, Mon­day to Fri­day, un­til Au­gust 19 at Bon­hams, Bond Street, Lon­don W1.
