I’ve collected over 150 different paintings and artwork depicting the Vietnam War.  Most were obtained from Pinterest – I’ve included author names when available.  If the author is unknown, then I’ve listed the website where it was last posted.  If you recognize a print without an author listed, please get back to me with the number of the print and author name and I’ll make the corrections.  Many almost look like real photos and it’s difficult to believe it’s a painting.  In addition, Joe Kline has recently published a video on Facebook that shows many of his prints to music – I’ve added it to the end of this article.  I hope you enjoy this presentation.
