Mick Jagger 143 was created while Warhol was at the height of his fame. Warhol spent a lot of time with Jagger and his current wife, Bianca. He was very close to their daughter, Jade. Andy even taught her 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. Mick Jagger 143 uses a bright red against deep pinks and golds to highlight Jagger’s famous lips.

Mick Jagger 143 by Andy Warhol as Part of his Larger Body of Work

This print is one of several pieces that Warhol created depicting Mick Jagger. In 1969, when The Rolling Stones approached Warhol and asked him to design the sleeve for their ninth studio album, Sticky Fingers. After Warhol agreed, he received a letter from Mick Jagger that included a polite warning not to make the cover too complex so that they could 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.
