Leighton, Clare, 1898-1989
Found in 23 Collections and/or Records:
Signed by Leighton. Labeled: Codfishing, 22/50.
Circular drawing of final image (reversed).
Four large sketches: three depict what look like lines (ropes), the top shrouded with fabric, the middle unknown, the bottom strung with doughnut-shaped floats. The top and bottom sketches represent parts of the rigging that appear in the right-most portion of the tool assembly (in the foreground of the image). Sketch of a barrel tied with cord in upper right corner.
Three rough sketches: two circular sketches with basic composition of the woodcut (incomplete); to the right, a barrel with handles. Beneath, a list of objects Leighton considered for tool assembly in the foreground: "flag [?] & floats, kegs, cod, trawl [?], fork, knife, anchor, sea claw." All but the first and last items are crossed out.
Cod: very fine, detailed full-page drawing of a cod.
Sketch of a knife and a three-pronged fork. Labeled "knife" and "fork."
Two pieces of paper taped together. On one page, the long, hooked pole used by the cod fishers to move the cod, here labeled "galt" or "gatt" [?]. Beneath, a bundle of cord labeled "light and binding cord." On the other sheet, an image of an anchor.
Partial proof: large portion of bottom left is blank. No visible corrections.
Numbered 1 in upper right corner.
Two pieces of paper glued together to form full image. At the top of the image, the paper has been cut into a semi-circle.
Numbered 2 in upper right corner.
First full image in the series.
Numbered 4 in upper right corner.
Numbered 6 in upper right corner.
Numbered 7 in upper right corner.
Numbered 8 in upper right corner.

Unnumbered state. Details on the edges of the ship and on the clothes of the right-most figures suggest this print comes between State 11 and State 12.
