Seen... the science in Turner's art? The 19th-century artist actively cultivated friendships with leading scientists of his day, including Humphrey Davey, Michael Faraday, Richard Owen and Mary Somerville. The new Tate Gallery exhibition claims to break new ground in exploring the nature of these and other friendships to reveal the impact that scientific, technological and architectural developments had on Turner's art. The exhibition hopes to reveal that there is an implicit awareness of scientific theory in Turner's work: it is argued that his iconic painting of a vessel in the thrall of nature's violence, Snow Storm - Steam boat off a Harbour's Mouth (1842), alludes to contemporary theories of the power and activity of the earth's magnetic forces.
