A view from the scientific voyage of Alessandro Malaspina, 1789-1794, showing the corvette Atrevida navigating between icebergs at night. After five years at sea Malaspina returned home in 1794 and found the political situation of Spain not to his liking: his liberal tendencies led to his imprisonment in 1796 and exile after his release in 1802. His seven-volume account of his expedition was suppressed and remained unpublished until the late 19th century.
