In this particular print, Mick Jagger stares back at the viewer with a straight face. This image presents a serious side of the rock star, a more intimate version of himself. Unlike many of his other portraits
It is no surprise that Warhol had a clear fascination with Hollywood fame and stardom. His love for his “superstars” and their extravagant lifestyles became a common theme in Warhol’s work. Some of Warhol’s other work which features well-known stars includes Liz Taylor, Grace Kelly, and Jane Fonda.
Andy Warhol and Mick Jagger first met in 1964 at a party for the Rolling Stones in New York, during the band’s first US tour. When they met, both artists were on the rise to fame. Jagger would eventually become an active member of the Factory scene, which led to the friendship between him and the artist. Andy Warhol became very close friends with Jagger, his wife Bianca, and even taught their daughter Jade how to paint.
Although Warhol admired many of his subjects, his bond with Jagger was more than a personal friendship. The two collaborated many times in their professional life as well, working together for the first time in 1971 on the album artwork for Sticky Fingers (1971).
