Works of art can also be ways in which political, economic, and philosophical ideas can be expressed. We come across many such works in the titles we put on the OLL website. The following “illustrated essays” discuss many of these along with other works of art, propaganda, statuary and other works. See for example the essays on Adam Smith and J.B. Say on the Division of Labour, The Gold Standard vs. Fiat Paper Money, Eugène Delacroix on Press Censorship during the Restoration (1814-1822), and Mises on Rationing and Price Controls in WW2.
