Many fishing enthusiasts enjoy realistic salmon prints. Like many hunting images, these aquatic paintings are realistic in execution and frequently depict salmon in coastal areas or within water. Salmon artworks like 'Atlantic Salmon' and 'Grilse or Young Salmon' are examples of this kind of art.
However, salmon aren't always featured alive and whole. Examples of cooked salmon are also available. In particular, the salmon art 'Still Life with Slices of Salmon' by Francisco De Goya is an example of these works. Goya's work is known for being macabre and dark, and this work of salmon art is no different. Whereas a live salmon is a symbol of knowledge, a dead one is a symbol of when knowledge fails and wisdom is thwarted.
