Heart-wrenching and tragic trench art big eyed (big eyes) painting of young soldier crying. I believe the piece is original to the time period and is signed'KIM. However, I was unable to acquire any additional information about the piece and/or artist.Given the DMZ and barbwire fence image, I believe it was done during the Korean War. The piece is beautiful, but does have condition problems, as I've highlighted in the last three photos. It needs serious cleaning and remounting. Despite what the back looks like, I have not seen additional deterioration of the piece since I've owned it, which has been about 20 years.
It has been stored in a dry, smoke free environment during that time. The painting measures 16" x 12.5". This item is in the category "Collectibles\Militaria\Korea (1950-53)\Original Period Items".
