Forty pages from Antarctica

Further information

In January - February 1987 Maddock visited Antarctica with two other artists, Jan Senbergs and John Caldwell, invited as part of the Australian Antarctic Division's 'Artists in Antarctica' programme. While alighting at Heard Island she seriously injured her knee and leg (she was permanently disabled by the accident) and was unable to continue to the mainland. However, she spent some time on the island itself drawing the coastline, and from the ship and her cabin window the Antarctic landmass. Upon her return to Launceston Bea Maddock developed these into this suite of etchings, completed in April 1988.
