Hello Steve,

A Report Viewer control is intended to show a data report in the control,
so if we want a graph object in Report Viewer control, we need to first to
create a report, add graph to the report and show it in Report Viewer

To add a image/graph to a report, there are several ways:

1. Add a Image component to the report directly. This can show a fixed
image and normally use as a logo or a fixed phote.
2. Add A Chart component. This will help us show the data in graphics and
we can define source and type of the Chart.
3. Add a Table or matrix component on the report, and we can set its
backgroud color. Is this what you want?

If there is any further questions, please feel free to let us know.
