A Visual History into the Art of Propaganda

In looking for good old propaganda art, I found this page. It makes me wonder if there is an artistic style adapted to persuasion, or is this style merely a historical accident of such early influential artists as Dimitri Moor, whose dominant works appeared between 1917-1921 (shown above).  This style seems marked by Herculean figures on stark, solid-colored backgrounds, as if the world paled in comparison to their potential threat or achievement.
