On Wikimedia Commons, larger here. Original is in the Dallas Museum of Art. There is an article about the painting on the Wall Street Journal. You can get a sense of the scale of the painting in this photo from Steve Doherty’s blog.

Just in case you haven’t seen enough ice yet.

    Mr. Parker,
    Thank you for this. I saw The Icebergs at the Dallas Museum of Art twenty-five years ago and never forgot it. It is magnificent.

    Your blog is a delight and I look forward to reading it. Thanks for that too.
    Best regards,
    Brett Lee
