Throughout the entire series (which takes place over the span of two years), this painting has made numerous appearances in Walter White's life, most notably, in the doctor's office where he receives his initial cancer diagnosis. The painting depicts a man in a boat paddling away toward a ship while, presumably, his wife and children wave goodbye.

A symbol of Walt's own growing alienation from his family and loved ones.
