Description :These famous and desirable scene is engraved by de Bry depicting a scene during the third Dutch arctic voyage in order to find the north-east passage to India.
Despite the failed voyages of 1594 and 1595 Petrus Plancius once more succeeded in convincing Amsterdam of his plans and equipped an expedition of two ships. The commands were given to Jan Cornelisz Rijp and Jacob van Heemskerck, while Willem Barentsz was the pilot. This route resulted in the discovery of Bear Island and both the north- westerly and westerly coasts of Spitzbergen. After their return to Bear Island the ships separated. Rijp made one more attempt to go north, while Willem Barentsz sailed to Novaya Zemlya to continue the old route along the west-coast. He managed to round the northern tip of Novaya Zemlya, but soon got caught in the ice, so that the crew were forced to overwinter there. In May/June 1597 they began the return voyage in two open ships. It was then that Willem Barentsz died.
