White House photographic print taken in 1961 by White House photographer Cecil Stoughton. Boldly signed by Jacqueline Kennedy at the lower left. Stoughton took multiple photos in front of the White House fountains on the South Lawn when developing the 1961 Christmas Print. The final Christmas print, which showed more ducks positioned closer to the photographer, is derived from a different photograph taken moments before or after this mock-up. Here, the ducks are positioned on the far side of the pool and the camera was positioned at a slightly different angle than that used for the final Christmas Print. Matted and framed with a full length printed portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy after a painting. The entire piece measures 20.5 inches by 31 inches. Rare and desirable.
