Autographed Nude Photograph of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Found Amid Warhol's Stuff

Jackie O in (Vintage) Nude Photo Scandal!

A word to the wise: naked photos can always resurface — even decades later. As archivists sort through 610 boxes full of memorabilia and junk collected by the late Andy Warhol, they recently stumbled upon an autographed nude photo of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Jackie O was a frequent muse to the packrat artist and apparently gifted him a naked poster signed, "For Andy, with enduring affection, Jackie Montauk." Matt Wrbican, who is overseeing the project of the Andy Warhol Foundation, says the handwriting matches that of Onassis, who often visited Warhol's Montauk, NY, beachhouse. Here's more:

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.

Wow, those guys are lucky that Jackie had a good sense of humor about the whole thing. In another funny twist, the relic was found amid junk ranging from receipts to fan mail and even Caroline Kennedy's wedding cake. Just goes to show you never know where things will turn up.

It just seems shocking since she was always touting the good girl image. I'm surprised. Really.

Why does nudity have to be such a big deal? If Jackie, or anyone, wants to be naked with, or give a consenting adult a nude photo, why not? After all we only come in two basic packages, so where is the big shocker? I think this level of intimate sharing is good, maybe they were good friends and nudity was just natural with them. I wish society would stop having a fit over the human body, besides what business is it of anyone except Jackie and Andy's anyway.
