Meaning & Analysis

Based on clippings taken from the media after the assassination of President John F Kennedy, Warhol’s Flash-November series is particularly poignant. The prints all come in edition sizes of 200 and each print takes an image that Warhol obtained from news clippings and photographs that circulated in the mass media in response to the assassination of the American president, John F. Kennedy in 1963. The prints were featured in a book along with text from the newspapers that were circulated in the wake of the tragic event. The title of the collection refers to the phrase ‘news-flash’ which denotes a highly important piece of breaking news. Kennedy himself features in many of the prints with one print, Flash November 22 (F. & S. II.34), using a photograph of his wife, First Lady Jackie Kennedy.
