No-To-Bac was a medicine that promised to help people break free from the tobacco habit. The artist Maxfield Parrish (1870 – 1966) was comissioned to design this medical poster. Here a warrior, in a gladiator style uniform, is triumphant over the "nicotine" soldier. Parrish was an American painter and illustrator. He worked on commission on books, advertising campaigns, magazines, and even sculpture. He was famous for his "girls on rocks" but his work went well beyond that series.
