Part of the show paintings for  Toward The Unknown Region, the Antarctica Landscapes.      

Aphelion is when the Earth is at its farthest point from the sun.  In Antarctica, this translates to a world of total or twilight darkness.  the scene here shows Mount Erebus (active volcano on Ross Island, Antarctica) during Civil Twilight where the sun is still below the horizon, but throws enough light to illuminate geographic features. 

Antarctic painting telling the story of Capt. Robert Scott's ill-fated Terra Nova Expedition to the South Pole 1910-1912.
