William Bradford (1823-1892) was one of the first American artists to explore and paint the Arctic Regions, culminating in several large masterpieces and the book, "The Arctic Regions" originally published in 1873. Experience Arctic-inspired work by Bradford and several marine painters who followed in his footsteps.
