Does a new graphic need all 4 parameters or not?

The documentation for a new graphic states "Creates a new Graphic object. All parameters are required and must be specified in the order given."

but under the concepts section on graphics there is this statement "Graphics are not required to have all of the above items, and no one item is required. "

Is this a discrepancy in the documentation or is there a real difference that I'm not seeing?
