This work is a second version of a gouache published in Vanity Fair in December 1934, now held in the collection of the United States Library of Congress. 

"As the first man to fly over the North Pole, in May 1926, Richard Byrd was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor and became an international hero. However, his later expeditions to the Antarctic in 1928 and 1933, heavily financed by wealthy investors (CBS and the New York Times had also purchased rights to his story), were criticized because he had named the topography after his backers. Byrd is depicted in this caricature during his five-month, self-imposed isolation at Advance Base on the 1933-1935 expedition to the South Pole."
