Description


Iconic original matte-finish 12 x 18 photograph of John and Robert Kennedy entitled ‘Brothers,’ taken by Jacques Lowe at the Biltmore Hotel, Los Angeles, on July 14, 1960—the day after JFK received the Democratic presidential nomination. The reverse bears Lowe’s photographer’s stamp, reading: “Studio One / #345 / Photographer / Jacques Lowe.” Attractively double-matted and framed to an overall size of 22 x 28. In fine condition, with trivial edge chips and dings seen only when removed from the frame. Lowe began working as John F. Kennedy’s campaign photographer in 1958, and documented his presidential administration until 1962. Taken on the day that Lyndon B. Johnson accepted Kennedy’s offer of the vice presidential nomination, the image is said to depict them discussing the choice of LBJ, which Robert F. Kennedy was adamantly against. Lowe passed away in early 2001, and his archive of negatives was destroyed with the World Trade Center, making this an especially scarce and desirable image.
