About

Mick Jagger is the infamous lead singer in British rock and roll band The Rolling Stones. He is depicted here bare-chested, playing up to Warhol’s camera. Warhol particularly liked Jagger’s photogenic, ‘bad-boy’ image and this work is part of a portfolio of ten screen prints of the star produced in 1975. In 1980, my father who was working with Andy Warhol took this particular print to him in NYC to sign for their friend Jimmy. Warhol dedicated the work and dated it, adding to the appeal and provenance of the piece.

In this series Warhol has incorporated blocks of irregularly shaped colour, which, although printed, appear like collaged fragments of coloured paper. In combining this with hand-drawn elements (also printed), the works appear more expressive than his earlier screenprints. The abstract quality of the blocks of colour shows the development of Warhol’s interest in more non-representational art that developed in the 1970's.
