Synopsis:

From the Dutch artist Jacob Gillig’s many still lifes to Renoir’s The Fish Monger and Manet’s Fishing, fish have inspired artists for thousands of years. They appear in the work of the old Dutch and Flemish masters as well as in the creations of French, English, and American painters. Yet the social and cultural significance of fishes’ representation in art has been overlooked. Christine E. Jackson remedies this deficiency in Fish in Art, an original perspective on the artistic legacy of fish and the fishing industry.

Surveying paintings from 2000 B.C. to the present, Jackson examines how representations of fish in art have evolved. She also delves into depictions of fish in kitchenware and tableware. Alongside her analysis of these artworks, she explores the social and historical issues that have engaged artists, including religious decrees on when to eat fish, the legacies of cod wars, and the rise and fall of particular ports. Widening her scope, she considers the ethics of catching fish and the ongoing industrial changes in the canning, ice, and salt industries, grounding her artistic study in the physical conditions of fishing and the fish trade, as well as the preparation, cooking, eating, and storage of these gilled creatures. Packed with over two hundred images, Fish in Art will capture the interest of fishermen, natural historians, and art students alike.

About the Author:

Christine E. Jackson is a fellow of the Linnean Society and a committee member of the Society for the History of Natural History, for which she was awarded the Founders’ Medal in 1996. She is the author of Peacock and Great Bird Paintings of the World.

Book Description Fische inspirieren Künstler seit Tausenden von Jahren. Sie sind im Werk vieler dänischer und flämischer alter Meister sowie französischer, englischer und amerikanischer Maler gegenwärtig. Dennoch wurde bis dato über die soziale und kulturelle Bedeutung der Repräsentation von Fischen in der Kunst hinweggesehen. In diesem Buch nimmt Christine E. Jackson Malerei vom Jahr 2000 v. Chr. bis heute in den Blick und untersucht sowohl die Entwicklung der Repräsentation von Fischen als auch deren Zubereitung, Verzehr, Lagerung und fischspezifische Küchen- und Tischware sowie soziale und historische Kontexte, die Künstler inspirierten. Ein faszinierendes Buch für Fischer, Naturhistoriker und Kunststudierende. (Text engl.) 19 x 25 cm, 248 S., 167 farb. und 198 s/w-Abb., geb. Seller Inventory # 757896

Book Description Reaktion Books. London. 2012 1st edition. 4to (190 x 250mm). Pp248. Colour paintings, colour & b/w illustrations, photographs, bibliography. Blue boards. Mint in dust-wrapper. "From frescos found at Pompeii to the Old Masters, Turner and Van Gogh, fish have inspired artists for thousands of years. Yet the social and cultural significance of fishes' representation in art has been overlooked. In this new study Christine E. Jackson remedies this deficiency, exploring the evolution of the depiction of fishes from 2000 BC to the present day, relating the images to their historical contexts." "In the sea, at the market, on the kitchen table: Fish in Art examines the diverse ways fishes have been presented by artists and what these images tell us about the catching, storage, preparation and cooking of fish over the centuries. The author analyses the economic, political and religious factors that engaged these artists, such as the rise and fall of ports across the world, the legacy of the Cod Wars and the various sacred decrees on the eating of fish. She considers the physical conditions and ethics of fishing, and the developments in the canning, ice and salt industries that continue today." "Fish in Art provides an original and unique perspective on the impact of fishes and the fishing industry on art and will capture the interest of fishermen, natural historians and art students alike.".
