Not an appropriated image from the mass media; this 1975 print is based on a photograph by Warhol himself. It features techniques that became standard in his later work like the use of torn paper collage with photographic images and the occasional superimposed drawing. In this case, he added drawn lines to accentuate Mick Jagger’s movements. It’s exceedingly sought after; this is one of ten unique screenprints in the “Mick Jagger” portfolio; the subject is portrayed in ten different poses rather than in a single frontal portrait. It is stamped in black on verso and bears the papermaker’s chop mark and watermark. Also, most of the prints are signed in black, green, or red felt pen by Mick Jagger.

As David Rodgers said, “Warhol, the epitome of cool, took artistic impersonality to extremes, choosing banal subjects, including popular icons, and executing them mechanistically.” Mick Jagger still remains an extremely popular icon today.
