The 20th Century presents society with a long list of incomprehensible situations and events. Few people understand why countries declare war, racial tensions exist or millions die from incurable diseases. Artistic representations of these phenomena give society a different viewpoint on humanity and present interpretations of current problems. Acting as a buffer between the horrors of reality and individual’s perceptions of the world, art allows people to see social problems in differing contexts and perhaps explains how to prevent or help certain situations.
Art helps to inform, explain and educate society about controversial issues, however, art can also be used to change people’s perceptions. Modern propagandists realize the persuasive emphasis behind visual representations and use this power in contemporary propaganda campaigns.

Habanos is the arm of the Cuban state tobacco company, Cubatabaco, that controls the promotion, distribution, and export of Cuban cigars and other tobacco products worldwide. The word habanos (not normally capitalised) means literally (something) from Havana, and is the word used in the Spanish-speaking world for Havana cigars and, sometimes, cigars in general. Habanos owns the trademarks of every brand of Cuban-made cigars and cigarettes in the countries they are exported to and franchises the La Casa del Habano chain of cigar stores. To control distribution and protect against counterfeiting, Habanos exports to only one company in each country (Hunters & Frankau for Great Britain and Gibraltar, 5th Avenue Cigars for Germany, Intertabak for Switzerland, Pacific Cigar Co. for most of the Pacific Rim, etc.). The only nation to which Habanos doesn’t sell cigars is the United States, which has had a trade embargo against Cuba since 1962.
In 2000, the Franco-Spanish tobacco giant Altadis purchased 50 % of Habanos. There has been speculation that their influence has led to Habanos’ drastic restructuring of their cigar lines and size offerings, the adoption of marketing practices and production methods more in-line with cigar companies that market in the US, and the increasing number of “special release” and “limited edition” lines of cigars. It has also been suggested that Altadis might be ramping Habanos up ready to trade with the US, anticipating the end of the embargo. Altadis was acquired by Imperial Tobacco in February 2008.

According to French historian Max Gallo, “for over two hundred years, posters have been displayed in public places all over the world. Visually striking, they have been designed to attract the attention of passers-by, making us aware of a political viewpoint, enticing us to attend specific events, or encouraging us to purchase a particular product or service.” The modern poster, as we know it, however, dates back to 1870 when the printing industry perfected color lithography and made mass production possible. “In little more than a hundred years,” writes poster expert John Barnicoat, “it has come to be recognized as a vital art form, attracting artists at every level, from painters to theatrical and commercial designers.
