Jackie Kennedy (original painting of woman enjoying painting by Andy Warhol)

The woman on my painting is looking at a portrait of Jackie Kennedy by Andy Warhol. In the weeks that followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, Warhol began to collect pictures of the widowed First Lady that flooded the popular press.
He had silkscreens made of his various Jackie images and began to print them on small canvases with blue- and gold-colored grounds. The close-cropped images here reproduces a moment shortly before any shots were fired and soon after. To me it shows that art has the power to transmute sadness into a thing of beauty.
