Beatrix Blake studied painting and stage design at Slade College of Art. She then went on to work as a designer and scene painter at The Mermaid Theatre, Royal Court Theatre and Watergate Theatre. As much of Blake’s work depicts fishing villages, abbeys and kirks, her work has been reproduced on the cover of various travel guides.

Lithograph is a printing process based on the fact that oil and water cannot mix. The artist uses a set of greasy crayons or pencils to draw an image onto the plate and then applies an oil-based variety of ink to it, which immediately bonds with the drawn lines. Water is then wiped onto the remaining areas to discourage the ink from smearing, it can then be printed. In Fishing Village, Fife Blake has used different colours, requiring numerous print runs to achieve this harmonious print. The glistening water and curved harbour wall contrasts with the linear, orderly tiles belonging to the quaint fishing cottages which sit very close together overlooking the sea.
