American (Kingston, N.Y., 1925)
“Kill for Peace”
Carol Summers is an impresario of luminous large scale color woodcuts. You couldn’t
know that by seeing the disturbing image he contributed to Artists & Writers Protest,
“Kill for Peace,” titled after a popular song of the time by the Fugs. This image
of a Vietnamese mother and her children was widely published in anti-war posters and
publications. Summers appropriated the image and added the red X and perforations
that look like automatic rifle spray.
