The Arctic Council planning a search for Sir John Franklin NPG 1208

© National Portrait Gallery, London

by Stephen Pearce

An expedition led by Sir John Franklin (1786-1847) was sent out by the Admiralty in May 1845 to try and find a North-West Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. In 1847 the Admiralty, advised by the sailors and explorers depicted, decided to organise a search; not until 1854 was it discovered that the expedition had died of starvation.
