Empathy Analogs - Situations & Similitudes

Marc Chagall The Promenade 
Empathy analogs are emotional surrogates.  Personal feelings are projected to or elicited from a stimulus object or idea.  The artist constructs a visual analog of that transfer.  Marc Chagall, for example, depicts the 'euphoria of love' by depicting young lovers as rubbery figures in a  brightly colored, gravity-free environment.  Empathy analogs are based on psychological, subjective resemblances and not on objective recreations.
