As is the case with many of his paintings, Dr. Seuss’s title, The Joyous Leaping of Uncanned Salmon, provides a gateway to the logical insanity of his creative imagination. In this piece, he serves up punchy color set against a geometric platform from which paisley-styled “salmon” jump for joy. And why wouldn’t they? Seuss purposefully asks questions that he intends the viewer to answer for themselves: Are these Salmon having a final celebration before their journey to the cannery, or have they completely escaped this unsavory predicament?
