Our Understanding of Dinosaurs Has Changed Since The Rite of Spring - But Imagination Was and Is Still Totally Involved.
During our conversation on The Rite of Spring, I mentioned reading an article at one time that discussed how the mounting of dinosaurs in museums has effected our imaginations. (I didn't find it - but this FAQ on dinosaur mounts is fascinating). I would still love to reread that article; if you've seen it send it my way! However, in my process of looking for it, I found some other really interesting things I can direct you to. What's interesting to me is how the art has complimented the science, and the imagination has even outpaced the science. Sorry, Deems Taylor.

Naish's article also mentions paleoartist John Conway.
Conway spoke to Jacqueline Ronson at Inverse. Ronson gives a nice rundown of the interaction between art and science.
