The influence of musicians and celebrities on individuals who commit acts of violence is commonly considered as a motive. Examples include perpetrators' obsessions with artists' song lyrics (e.g. Marilyn Manson), fictional characters (E.g. Batman) or a desire to be noticed by a particular celebrity (e.g. Jodie Foster). This work examines a hypothetical theory of how Abstract Expressionism, especially the work of Jasper Johns, may have similarly influenced JFK's assassin.
