– The steamship Eclipse traveled from London, England to Polar waters. Captain David Gray reported on his travels and the illegal killing of seals while he was crabbing in the sea in 1875-1877. He most probably was in Denmark when he reported on the incident. Carlsen painted the ship most probably when he was there. Based on the accounts of the captain, Carlsen may have been in Denmark in March.
