Sometime between 1961 and 1963, First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy observed a Large Oil Painting, of The White House, as it appeared in 1805. In fact, this same Original Oil Painting has been hung in The Oval Office by almost all Presidents for many years.
ORIGINAL ART - BY JACQUELINE KENNEDY - AS FIRST LADY - A PAINTING THAT SHE ACCOMPLISHED FOR HER HUSBAND PRESIDENT JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY
The Highly Skilled First Lady Propped up her Easel (JBK is featured with it in this same writing) and took her Watercolors and Brush to form this accurate and Beautiful Rendition of The White House - Just as it appeared way back in 1805 - when Thomas Jefferson was our Incumbent President.

The First Lady meant for this Original Painting to be Personally Presented to her Husband, The President. And, Mrs. Kennedy was quite clear in her wishes in that she uncharacteristically Signed this 5" x 7" inch Painting in an unusual format. Almost always Jacqueline Kennedy Signed her Artistic Renderings - "J B K ". However, Mrs. Kennedy Signed this Very Personal Example, "J to J" (Jacqueline to Jack). It is now an Historic and Important Piece of our American History.
