Naked Poster Of Jackie Kennedy Found In Warhol’s “Junk”

Twenty-two years after his death, archivists are working through 610 cardboard boxes of Andy Warhol’s “collected items”–a mish-mash of receipts, cash, gems, moldy wedding cake, and, among plenty of other things, a naked poster of Jackie Kennedy signed, “For Andy, with enduring affection, Jackie Montauk.”

 

As it happens, says Wrbican — who along with other researchers authenticated the signature through handwriting comparisons — Onassis was a frequent visitor to Warhol’s Montauk, N.Y., beachfront estate.

So, after her second husband, Aristotle Socrates Onassis, got a paparazzi to take pictures of her skinny-dipping and it landed in the hands of Larry Flint, who turned it into a poster for his porn magazine, Hustler, Jackie O sent a copy — likely as a joke — to Warhol, Wrbican said.
