The inscription for the painting follows below:

 

Soo Suk Kim, a 22-year-old art student, painted War in 1966 as a gift to his brother-in-law, Captain Franklin Del Jones, who was serving as a division psychiatrist in Vietnam. Soo Kim had experienced war first-hand as 6-year-old refugee during the North Korean occupation of Seoul, hiding from a communist edict calling for the execution of his prominent family. The painting depicts his childhood recollection of the horrors and chaos of war.
