Through a selection of modern pieces, Waddington argues that twentieth-century paintings have a connection to physics in a sense that both seek deeper understandings of the world. From the dust jacket: “Waddington examines the art-science relationship at several levels that can be divided between the conscious connections made by painters who followed the development of twentieth-century physics and the unconscious reflections in the work of artists of the new scientific description and schematization of nature.”
