Rumsfeld Stars in Baghdad Art Show

Muayad Muhsin was both inspired and enraged by a photo of U.S. Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld slumped on a seat with his army boots up in front of him. This painting is called 'Picnic.'

Mushin says this photo of Rumsfeld, taken during a May 2004 visti to Iraq, inspired the painting. "It symbolized America's soulless might and arrogance," he said. (David Hume Kennerly, Getty Images)

Another painting, 'Execution Plaza,' is also in the exhibit. It features a woman blindfolded and turned to stone. She represents Iraq. (AP)
