Record Type: concept
emblems (allegorical pictures) (<visual works by function>, visual works (works), ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Allegorical pictures, often inscribed with mottoes, common especially in Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries. Emblems combine both words and images, the interpretation of which requires intellectual effort and results in the communication of a moral lesson. For the simpler symbol that represents an idea, use "emblems (symbols)."

Additional Notes:

German ..... Allegorische Darstellung, oft mit einem Wahlspruch beschriftet, insbesondere im Europa des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts gebräuchlich. Embleme verbinden Worte und Bilder, deren Interpretation intellektuelle Anstrengung erfordert und zur Vermittlung einer moralischen Lehre führt. Für ein einfacheres Symbol, das eine Idee wiedergibt, siehe "Emblem (Symbol)". 
Spanish ..... Imágenes alegóricas, a menudo inscritas con lemas, comunes especialmente en los siglos XVI y XVII. Distintas de "emblema (símbolo)", que son objetos simbólicos simples o representaciones de un objeto.
