    "Cropping Jackie's face from eight reproductions, he bought her into close-up, making her the dramatic focus and emotional barometer of the Kennedy assassination, shifting the historical narrative into a series of affective moments or portraits that register the subject over time." (G.Frei and N. Printz, eds., The Andy Warhol Catalogue Raisonneé of Paintings and Sculptures, 1961-1963, vol. 1, New York, 2002, p. 103).
