James Perry Wilson

The American painter James P Wilson (1889-1976) is best known for the diorama paintings he produced for natural history museums. 
To help him create the illusion of reality he thought about light and atmosphere in scientific terms.
The art and illustration blog Gurney's Journey has an interesting post on his technique and theory.
