Summary
"Fishes 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."--Cover
