For centuries, artists from Michelangelo to Picasso have written and published poems. Artists who are fluent in the visual and literary arts are able to select the creative medium that best expresses their ideas.

In some cases, paintings and poetry are displayed together to more deeply communicate a theme, emotion, or thought.
