     [1913 Webster]

From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) :

      n 1: photographs or other visual representations in a printed
           publication; "the publisher was responsible for all the
           artwork in the book" [syn: artwork, art, graphics,
           nontextual matter]
      2: the drawings and photographs in the layout of a book

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      Any kind of visible output including text,
     images, movies, line art and digital photographs;
     stored in bitmap or vector graphic form.
     Most modern computers can display non-{text data and most use
     a graphical user interface (GUI) for virtually all
     interaction with the user.  Special hardware, typically some
     kind of graphics adaptor, is required to allow the computer
     to display graphics (as opposed to, say, printing text on a
     teletype) but since GUIs became ubiquitous this has become
     the default form of visual output.  The most demanding
     applications for computer graphics are those where the
     computer actually generates moving images in real time,
     especially in video games.
     There are many kinds of software devoted to manipulating
     graphical data, including image editing (e.g. Photoshop),
     drawing (e.g. Illustrator), user interface toolkits
     (e.g. X Window System), CAD, CGI.
