Summary

  • "In Shooting Kennedy, David Lubin speculates on the allure of iconic images of the Kennedys, using them to illuminate the entire American cultural landscape. He draws from a spectacularly varied intellectual and visual terrain - neoclassical painting, Victorian poetry, modern art, Hollywood films, TV sitcoms - to show how the public came to identify personally with the Kennedys and how, in so doing, they came to understand their place in the world. This mix of art history, cultural history, and popular culture offers a look at twentieth-century America."--Jacket.
