A Reassessment of the Solar Geometry of Constable’s Salisbury Rainbow
Professor John Thornes (member 26) is an expert on the depiction of weather in art. He has recently had an essay published in Tate Magazine in which he solves a puzzle about the rainbow depicted by the English landscape artist, John Constable, in his painting Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows. Professor Thornes’s work is a great demonstration of how science can inform art and vice-versa.
