After President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, Andy Warhol began his series of "Jackie" paintings and prints in response to the media blitz that followed the event. "Jackie I" is the very first print Warhol made of Jacqueline Kennedy, from news photos of her that he culled from international press coverage of JFK's death. From the ground-breaking portfolio, 11 Pop Artists I, 1966.

A very important print, this work is included in numerous museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Andy Warhol (1928-1987) is widely credited as one of the most significant artists of the 20th century. After studying design at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, Warhol moved to New York in 1949 to pursue a career as a commercial artist. Though successful, Warhol wanted to be an independent painter. In the early 1960s he began to create paintings based on advertising imagery. He established his own studio, The Factory, and developed his signature style, employing commercial silkscreening techniques to create identical, mass-produced images on canvas. With his multiple images of soup cans, soda bottles, dollar bills and celebrities, Warhol revealed the beauty within mass culture and redefined the art world.
