Many modern scholars view metaphor as the central trope of language, both in everyday, prosaic contexts as well as in literature and art. Visual art, also, is metaphorical representation, not merely literal representation, with a language of its own comprised of literal and figurative elements. Delineating the structure of visual metaphor is a task that is being undertaken in many disciplines. (Victor Kennedy and John Kennedy)
