<span style="font-size:13.0pt;line-height:150%;font-family:"Helvetica",sans-serif;color:#101010">In this paper, I appeal to a distinction made by David Lewis between identifying and determining semantic content in order to defend a complementarity thesis expressed
 by Anjan Chakravartty. The thesis states that there is no conflict between informational and functional views of scientific modeling and representation. I then apply the complementarity thesis to well-received theories of pictorial representation, thereby
 stressing the fruitfulness of drawing an analogy between the nature of fictions in art and in science. I end by attending to the problem of depicting impossible fictions. It is suggested that progress can be made by understanding the role of impossible fictions
 in science, namely, allowing researchers to probe into the possible structure and representational capacities of scientific theory.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
