Subject and Association DescriptionLionel Lindsay created many still life prints - almost all as wood engravings.
"'Fish' is a careful study of light and shade in a simple kitchen subject. But the detailed cutting of the scales on the gutted fish has been extended to the background of table and kitchen stove, thus giving the whole an impression of rustic domestic unity."
