While it may be obvious that Art impacts you emotionally, understanding that humanity's Belief in religious metaphysical matters was established by triggering auditory or visual emotional pathways would change the way we see Art.
Yes, Arts and Religion target affecting Humanity's emotions to enhance delivering their message to the hearts.
Psalms of Judaism
Psalms are sacred songs or hymns, in particular any of those contained in the biblical Book of Psalms and used in Jewish worship.
The reading of psalms is viewed in Jewish tradition as a vehicle for gaining God's favor. They are thus often specially recited in times of trouble, such as poverty, disease, or physical danger, Psalms actually trigger auditory sensory stimulation of human emotions.
The Religion of Islam
Recitation of the Holy Quran, via auditory emotional effect, contributes to the release of endorphins by stimulating alpha brain waves. Therefore, it enhances the stress threshold, removes negative emotions, and creates a sense of relaxation.
The Christianity Art
Christianity not only utilized the Psalms for emotional stimulation, Christianity also triggered visionary emotional stimulation, we see extensive utilization of painting and sculpting in Christianity's approach to its followers' hearts.
Images of Jesus and narrative scenes from the Life of Christ, the Virgin Mary, and saints are the most common subjects,
Christianity makes far wider use of images than related religions, in which figurative representations of the Prophets are forbidden, such as Islam and Judaism.
The Theosophical Doctrine
the Theosophical Society in 1875.
The Theosophical Society, founded in 1875, is a worldwide body with the aim to advance the ideas of Theosophy in continuation of previous Theosophists, especially the Greek and Alexandrian Neo-Platonic philosophers dating back to the 3rd century CE. It also encompasses wider religious philosophies like Vedānta, Mahāyāna, Qabbalah, and Sufism.
The theosophical society did not find better than abstract art to get represented to the public, via Hilma Af Klint's abstract paintings, the so-called "high masters" of theosophy were trying to send a message to humanity, as Hilma believed.
Also, Wassily Kandinsky openly acknowledges that his art theories are based on the occult teachings of Helena Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy, and author of The Secret Doctrine. he wrote in 1918 “I got everything from the Secret Doctrine of Blavatsky.
Now we can see, even the Luciferian "daemonic" secret doctrine is targeting via abstract art the human visionary-related emotions.
When we look closely at metaphysical attempts to affect humanity via the emotional auditory and visionary pathways, we understand how critical the rule of emotions on a human being is, and we understand why art in all its forms is a great matter.
From now on, when you stand in front of an artwork, remember, the artist may be a hobbyist, a professional, or furthermore a believer.
