Jackie blue

I love this portrait of Jackie Kennedy by Andy Warhol. It is one of many images in the extensive series the artist did following the assasination of President Kennedy. Although some of the portraits were shown individually, most were exhibited as a series and mimiced the obsession most of us had (and still have) with wanting to really see who these people were. I think it says so much about how little Mrs. Kennedy revealed of herself that we just can't get enough of observing her.
