Joseph van Waterschoot van der Gracht Collection
11 artworks in pencil and crayon have been positively identified as works by Gracht, with another 21 probably of the same provenance, all created by the artist on the first relief voyage of the expedition ship 'Aurora'. They capture polar scenes not otherwise recorded, and inject a large degree of humour the public still find engaging in large part.
