From ancient times, people have used images to communicate. Think of early cave art or Egyptian hieroglyphics - visual art can explore concepts or ideas without requiring written statements. Words are sometimes included and can be an effective complement, but they're not the primary way ideas are conveyed in visual art.
So what does art say? Art can promote specific political viewpoints. Artists have made drawings, paintings, sculptures and many other art objects to challenge assumptions, to support causes, and to explore deep personal questions. And throughout history, art has been used for many purposes, including reinforcing religious doctrine or linking religious and political power.
Communication through art can be achieved in many ways that don't rely on words. Sometimes they're obvious, like a celebratory image of a political leader.

Art often explores broad ideas or themes, some more obvious than others, and art often reflects on the time period in which it was created, whether as a statement of support or a reaction against something.
