Colored lithograph of an Arctic scene with men in a rowboat lancing a whale, which is spouting; the base of the spout is red, perhaps to indicate blood. Another rowboat approaches the tail of the whale from the right, and a third rowboat is shown in the background, as well as a large ship with sails. Below the image is the text, "J.D. Harding del."
