DantoVs: E.g. a picure of the Holy Trinity is still a picture "of" the Trinity, even if God does not exist or if the world does not exist.
"Of": ambiguous: a) Classification: E.g. dog pictures, man pictures - b) representation.
Wittgenstein II 104
Picture/Description/Wittgenstein: when describing a picture, the picture is not in every word - the picture corresponds to a sentence.
