For millennia, humans have been drawn to the ocean for both physical and spiritual sustenance, so it’s no wonder that marine life has been a perpetually popular subject for art. In Asia, koi fish paintings have been prized since antiquity, as these works are thought to invite prosperity into the home. In Europe, fish were often included in still lifes (most notably by Édouard Manet and Flemish painter Alexander Adriaenssen), and during the modernist era, Paul Klee’s two-dimensional renderings of fish became some of his most enduring works.
