Andy Warhol. [Portraiture – Richard Brilliant.]

321x400

The sixteen Jackies (above) created in 1964 and it was Andy Warhol’s reaction to the assassination of President Kennedy the year before. I really find this piece intriguing, I’ve always enjoyed Warhol’s screen printing and have used his work as inspiration many times before. Warhol selected eight photographs from the assassination that had been used within the media to cover the story about the new widow.
