Frasconi, an internationally-recognized woodcut artist, is the illustrator of many books and posters. His bold and colorful signature style emanates from the artist’s enthusiastic response to the world around him:

"There is so much going on, so much material for artists! You go back a hundred times to a place like the Fulton Fish Market, until you know just how a man lifts a box, say, or how the place looks before dawn. Then you’re ready to make a picture – to put your own feeling into it."

Unloading the Fish is part of his Fulton Fish Market series. The market is in lower Manhattan, near the Brooklyn Bridge, whose cables create a lovely interplay with the boat’s rigging in Frasconi’s print.
