THE ASSASSIN'S ART:

The Art of Duplicity (Geri Spieler, April 14, 2009, Huffington Post

Twenty-seven years ago I promised a convicted felon I would store her art collection until her son would take for her.

This collection is not some small assembling of prints or photos. The collection includes seven oil paintings, some as large as a doorway. There are wall-size Georgia O'Keefe-type flowers bursting in reds and orange magnificence.

The most interesting piece is an original United Press International photo of Jackie Kennedy walking on the beach in Hyannis Port, MA. On the back of the frame is the original type written report from the press photographer.

How this photo got into the hands of a potential presidential assassin is curious, indeed. I wish I knew? The story of the Jackie photo and the history of many other pieces of the art collection are still unknown to me.

The story of how I became the "keeper of the art" began on October 15, 1975.


Ms Spieler's book on Sara Jane Moore describes an almost unimaginably peculiar woman.
