“Here in Washington at the White House, the official portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy is a pale and ruffled confection. Her long, pink dress flows like a negligee — Mrs. Kennedy chose to be remembered that way. Tina Mion’s portrait, far less romantic and tranquil, snatches at some of the cruelest seconds in American history.”
