Turner
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._M._W._Turner

He entered the Royal Academy of Art schools in 1789, when he was only 14 years old,[6] and was accepted into the academy a year later. Sir Joshua Reynolds, president of the Royal Academy at the time, chaired the panel that admitted him. At first Turner showed a keen interest in architecture but was advised to continue painting by the architect Thomas Hardwick (junior). A watercolour of Turner's was accepted for the Summer Exhibition of 1790 after only one year's study. He exhibited his first oil painting in 1796, Fishermen at Sea, and thereafter exhibited at the academy nearly every year for the rest of his life.

One of his most famous oil paintings is The fighting Temeraire tugged to her last berth to be broken up, painted in 1838, which hangs in the National Gallery, London. See also The Golden Bough.

John Constable
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Constable
His most famous paintings include Dedham Vale of 1802 and The Hay Wain of 1821. Although his paintings are now among the most popular and valuable in British art, he was never financially successful and did not become a member of the establishment until he was elected to the Royal Academy at the age of 52.

 

The Ancient of Days

William Blake
(28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827) was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of both the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age

John Everett Millais

The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (also known as the Pre-Raphaelites) was a group of English painters, poets, and critics, founded in 1848 by William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The three founders were soon joined by William Michael Rossetti, James Collinson, Frederic George Stephens and Thomas Woolner to form a seven member "brotherhood".

The group's intention was to reform art by rejecting what they considered to be the mechanistic approach first adopted by the Mannerist artists who succeeded Raphael and Michelangel

Mobil 

http://www.exxonmobil.com/corporate/

Oil company with a patent on 100 octane petrol, and ZSM5 a catalyst which turns methanol into petrol.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZSM-5
("ZSM-5 (structure type MFI) is an aluminosilicate zeolite mineral belonging to the pentasil family of zeolites. Its chemical formula is NanAlnSi96-nO192•16H2O (0<n<27). Patented by Mobil Oil Company in 1975, it is widely used in the petroleum industry as a heterogeneous catalyst for hydrocarbon isomerization reactions.")
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Aromatic_compounds
Petrol companies were forced to remove Benzine from petrol because it is a known carcinogen and also leads to retarded growth development in infant brains. They were forced to use Mobil's patents and pay royalties to the company for the use of them.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzene
Benzine is a five carbon ring molecule, rather than petrol's eight carbon ring formula, giving rise to the "octane" name.
