This black & white woodblock print, called a xilogravura,
shows the lively scene at a morning fish market. Sellers and buyers are crowded into the picture; fishermen carry baskets of fish; vendors wait for customers at market stalls.

The artist of "The Fish Market" is J. Miguel Borges, son of J. Borges, one of the best known artists and writers of cordel. He maintains a studio not far from his father in the small community of Bezerros, about 70 miles from Recife, Brazil.

These block prints were originally developed as covers for the chapbooks of literatura de cordel. Gradually artists who designed covers for the small chapbooks created larger images to sell. The subjects of these prints is often humorous or imaginative.
