Caption: Third Barents Arctic Expedition of 1596, artwork. After their ship was trapped in the ice, the expedition crew of 16 spent the winter in this shelter (Het Behouden Huys, The Kept House) that they built on Novaya Zemlya. Led by the Dutch navigator and explorer William Barents (c.1550-1597), this expedition attempted to find the Northeast Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Barents died in June the following year as they attempted to escape. This engraving is from The Three voyages of William Barents to the Arctic Regions (Amsterdam, circa 1600) by Gerrit de Veer, a member of the third expedition.
