Frank Harding was a British artist who excelled in the production of maritime etchings and drypoints. He is listed as exhibiting in London during 1885 and 1890. He had a penchant for illustrating commercial fishing fleets, mainly in Devon and Cornwall and the south-west coast of England. Always confused by several later artists who shared his name but were unrelated. His work is distinguished by its economical use of etching highlighted by crisp, drypoint highlights.

The print depicts the Brixham fishing fleet of trawlers, sails set, off the coast. Brixham was the first port to begin deep sea trawling.
