Mick Jagger 140 was created while Warhol was at the height of fame. Warhol spent a lot of time with Jagger and his wife Bianca. He was was closest to their Jagger’s daughter, Jade, whom Andy taught how to paint. He produced this screenprint of Mick Jagger as part of a portfolio of 10 in 1975. Most prints in the series feature Warhol’s signature in pencil as well as Mick Jagger’s signature in felt pen. The Mick Jagger portfolio is distinctive in its collage style; each print emphasizes a different aspect of Jagger’s features. Jagger 140 by Andy Warhol as Part of His Larger Body of Work

Mick Jagger 140 is one of several pieces that Andy Warhol did depicting Mick Jagger. In 1969 the Rolling Stones approached Warhol and asked him to design the sleeve for their ninth studio album Sticky Fingers. Warhol agreed and received a letter from Mick Jagger that included a polite warning not to make the cover too complex to avoid problems during production. Warhol ignored Jagger’s warning and went on to produce an unforgettable cover that featured a close-up shot of actor and “Warhol superstar” Joe Dallesandros. Additionally, Warhol expanded into the realm of performance art with a traveling multimedia show called The Exploding Plastic Inevitable, which featured a rock band called The Velvet Underground.
