In this remarkable experience, a reluctant customer to the Arctic flourishes within the striking and unforgiving landscape.

In 1933, Christiane Ritter, a painter from Austria, travelled to Spitsbergen, an Arctic island north of Norway, to be along with her husband. He were enjoying a systematic day trip and stayed directly to hunt and fish. “Leave every little thing because it is and stick with me to the Arctic,” he wrote to his spouse; yet for Christiane, “as for all crucial Europeans, the Arctic was once simply one other observe for freezing and forsaken solitude. i didn't keep on with at once.” finally she gave in, lured by way of his compelling tales concerning the impressive natural world and welcoming gentle exhibits. She says: “They informed of trips through water and over ice, of the animals and the fascination of the desolate tract, of the unusual gentle over the panorama, of the unusual illumination of one’s personal self within the remoteness of the polar evening. In his descriptions there has been essentially by no means any point out of chilly or darkness, of storms or hardships.”
