Lot description
The Flash portfolio by Andy Warhol is undeniably one of his most famous, documenting disasters in the media, particularly the Kennedy assassination. This bold red print depicting televised JFK portrait, underlines Warhol's understanding of the media in creating contemporary mythology. With Kennedy's face floating in both the foreground and the background, it appears as if he has been captured in glimpses, flashes of time. The white outline of his features makes him appear ghost-like, intangible, and yet eternally recognized and revered.
