Charles Grantier was one of several graduates of the University of North Dakota who had studied under Margaret Kelly Cable. Grantier went on to become a ceramicist with Dickinson Clay Products Co., and then director of the WPA ceramics project in 1939.

Fish play many roles in human cultures. From economic importance to mythological and religious significance, the fish finds itself as an artistic muse throughout history.
