History of Sculpture...
Original "Inaugural Head" sculpture of John F. Kennedy was createdin plaster the night of President Kennedy's assassination,by Robert Berks whose signatureis on the nape of the neck. His finger prints are visible as each piece has slight variations. It is signed and dated on the left nape: "Berks C 64." This is the only sculpted likeness of President Kennedy that Jacqueline Kennedy liked "..it captures the essence of Jack". The work evokes a reverent presence in its own right that no other likeness has been able to project, one can hardly pass it by without at least thinking a respectful, "good morning Mr President." It is a most beloved historical work of art begun as the sun set on that tragic day in November of 1963 after Mr Berks receiving a phone call from a friend at the news desk of the New York Times, according to Robert Berks estate.
