Its survival may rest on the fact that it entered the museum’s collection so soon after it was painted, as every August the artist would evaluate the contents of his studio and destroy anything that wasn’t up to his exacting standards. According to Berry’s widow, Fishwife is painted in a style quite different from most of his work. A turbaned Haitian woman lifts an enormous, wide-eyed fish from a wicker basket; the diagonal line of her muscular arm echoes the ramshackle roofline of the building behind her. The influence of photography is seen in the arm of a third person poking in from the left side of the composition.

Leighton was one of the finest engravers of her time. Born in London, England, she graduated from the Slade School of Art and also attended the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London. She learned wood engraving during a revival of the craft and had access to skilled masters. Leighton began her career reproducing prints in several English publications, and simultaneously developed her work during sketching trips to France, Italy and the Balkans. In 1939 she immigrated to the United States, where she exhibited and lectured widely and won numerous commissions. She was most well-known for writing and illustrating over 65 books reflecting on agricultural lifestyle and the contrasts of urban modernization. Leighton taught at Duke University, lectured at the National Academy of Design and received honorary Doctor of Fine Arts from Colby College in Waterville, Maine.
