The Dallas Museum of Art houses this piece of art work that was designed for Department of Treasury in 1918. Its artist was Sidney H. Riesenberg and it was designed to convince Americans to buy U.S. Govt Bonds during World War I. This type of art would fall into the category of persuasive art. The soldier, carrying the American flag, was symbolic for patriotism. Essentially the Treasury was using Americans pride and patriotism to sell bonds in order to finance the war. The marketing industry uses this type of art for whatever product they are trying to sell. Posters, bulletins, blogs, websites, commercials and all sorts of advertisements can be classified as art that persuades.
