Steve Mumford's War Journals

Back in December I posted images from Steve Mumford's Guantanamo drawings. The Frist Center in Nashville has Steve Mumford’s War Journals, 2003-2013 a series of water color and gouache paintings Mumford made while embedded with the US troops in Iraq.

  • Steve Mumford. A typical Iraqi checkpoint in Baghdad in 2007 as the US raced to get Iraqi forces in place. It seemed to me that what the Iraqis lacked in finesse, they often made up for in boldness, 2007. Ink, watercolor, and gouache on paper.
