Pop Art print rotation, Post-1950 American art gallery, Jessica Marten, Assistant Curator, Oct. 3, 2011 - March 5, 2012:

President John F. Kennedy was the first “television president;” he and his wife and children were regulars on our TVs, as if they were our royal family. After the President’s assassination, Warhol treated images of Jacqueline Kennedy as a popular culture commodity much like his ubiquitous Campbell Soup can.

Warhol used a commercial silkscreen technique to produce his art. “I wanted something that gave more of an assembly line effect… With silkscreening you pick a photograph, blow it up, transfer it in glue onto silk, and then roll ink across it so the ink goes through the silk but not through the glue. That way you get the same image, slightly different each time. It was all so simple quick and chancy.”
