Naked Jacqueline Onassis Photo Found With Warhol's Junk

PITTSBURGH — A cardboard lid is lifted and four archivists peer inside. A postal box from Paris. Who sent it? A piece of crusty wedding cake. Whose? Another box: $17,000 in cash. Yet another: An autographed picture of a naked Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.


And how did Warhol come to possess a naked poster of Jackie O 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 Flynt, who turned it into a poster for his porn magazine, Hustler, Jackie O sent a copy – likely as a joke – to Warhol, Wrbican said.

"I really doubted it was her signature at first," he says. "But it really matches her writing."

See, why can't Michelle Obama be classy like Jackie? Real first ladies go nude instead of wearing skanked up short shorts. ;p

I would love to get the chance to look through the boxes of stuff that Warhol kept.

I fucking hate Andy Warhol.

Yeah I'm not a fan of him either. I like some of his work but the guy himself can kiss my ass.

Am I the only one who clicked in hopes of actually seeing it?

I feel slightly dirty. Just slightly.

Show's some ass but that's it.

I actually like it. It's not that bad.

Wow, how the fuck did I manage to miss this post? Sigh.

I'd love to dig through Warhol's old junk, man.
