Is ere Visual Rhetoric in Some Emblem Pictures?

In a sense this is a continuation of a review1 of some recent publications in German on something that has been called “Bildwissenscha” (literally, the science of pictures or images) and “Bildrhetorik” (rhetoric of pictures or images). I am trying to apply certain notions of visual rhetoric to emblem pictures. It should be acknowledged that emblem scholars have already learned much from art historians, and hopefully vice versa.
