From the Author
The accumulated vision of a matchless eye...from iconic wartime photos to intensely personal at-home images of Picasso at play and at work...much of Duncan's prolific body of work is archived and made available to the public through The Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin thanks to the foresight and generosity of Stanley Marcus.
This '81 Club paper, first presented in 2005, still reverberates with vitality, as accurate and interesting today as it was then. Mr. Duncan's work is a living history of war and the nomad life.
