Warhol created a series of 10 portraits of Mick Jagger in 1975 as a collaboration with the Seabird Editions Company in London. That summer Jagger had posed for a series of photographs at the artists’ home. Warhol had wanted the series to reflect different aspects of Mick’s persona. He used the images from the photographs and added further layers of collaged colour blocks and hand-drawn lines. This collection represents a looser style with more evidence of the artist’s hand in contrast to the deliberate flatness of his earlier celebrity portraits.
