Improvement of publiservice, of medical knowledge, of medical education, and of medical ethics, were aims of The American Medical Association, organised May 7 1847 at The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. Now in its second century of service, AMA is the world’s largest medical organization. This original coloured print is taken from a series of forty five images depicting the History of Medicine presented by the Parke Davis & Company. The work was directed by George Bender and the illustrations were taken from a series of paintings by Robert Thom. Each individual plate comes with detailed background information and is presented with the image. Robert Thom (1915-1979) was an award-winning American painter and historian who specialized in the portrayal of historical scenes. He is perhaps best known for his series of forty paintings depicting the History of Pharmacy, and this series of forty-five paintings depicting the History of Medicine; both commissioned by Parke-Davis.
