~  Magic Realism - The Metaphors  ~

       Metaphors can be important components in Magic Realism. They can be personal for the artist or universal in nature. For example, in De Chirico's early Metaphysical paintings the inclusion of trains are metaphors for his father, who was an engineer for railroads. Similarly, Andrew Wyeth included many metaphors for his father in his paintings of the late  1940s
