A visual work of art carries various types of information on the context and period of its emergence. This information may be about the artist, the surrounding environment, society, and the theme of the work or all of these aspects. Besides, its mission of artistic existence, the work inherently transfers this information about the past. This inherent quality is sometimes referred to as the feature of documentation. The acceptance of artworks as documentation can be exemplified with the paintings of Venedician painters, which were used by experts to determine the rise in the sea water level of the city. Although documentation is one feature of art, the primary role of art is its societal mission, which suggests a translation of social problems into a universal artistic language.
