Title not known (Ahmad 25)
Boy sitting in front of a cigarette stand
In this simple scene, Mahoud Ahmad has rendered the form of a young boy sitting rather awkwardly in front of a stand containing various brands of cigarettes. The young figure’s expression is striking with his brow furrowed, lips tightly pursed, and chin curled in a quiver. Two used cigarette butts litter the foreground while the background remains non-descript, soft square shapes to the right hinting at a brick structure.
Location: Currently unknown. Possibly from the collection of the Iraqi Museum of Modern Art (the former Saddam Center for the Arts)
Hard copies purchased from the photographer of the museum in 2004.
