Navy Art

cold art

Artist Arthur Beaumont (1890-1968) traveled around the world painting for the Navy. Long before NSF came up with the Artists and Writers Program, Arthur made 2 trips to the ice in 1959-60 and 1960-61, the second trip included a scheduled 6-hour visit to Pole which of course got extended to a week due to bad weather. So he had time to paint this watercolor of the station, outdoors...
