Jackie at JFK's Inauguration
The fourth installment in my "Jackie" series, in which Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis travels the world through her famous sunglasses. This portrait shows Jackie witnessing JFK's presidential inauguration on January 20, 1961. Although it was the first inauguration broadcast in color, most Americans watched in black-and-white. Her lenses are in the shape of a 1960s CRT television. The light blue background symbolizes the common misconception that Jackie's coat and pillbox hat were that color, though archival video footage proves they were actually tan.
The original 48"x32" acrylic portrait on canvas features high gloss sunglass lenses over a satin varnish.
Note: Gallery-wrapped canvas is only available in 16x24, 20x30, and 24x36. The spot varnish is only on the original painting and not the prints.
Original painting SOLD to a private collector.
