Andy Warhol’s portrait of Mick Jagger is as iconic as the two artists were themselves. Since Ackerman’s Fine Art is now offering one of these portraits, we thought you might enjoy learning more about the relationship Andy and Mick had with each other.
HOW WARHOL MET JAGGER
Andy Warhol and Mick Jagger met at a party in 1964, when the Rolling Stones were on their first US tour. At this time, both were rising to fame and establishing their image. The Rolling Stones were viewed as the dirty alternative to the clean-cut Beatles and art collectors may have viewed Andy Warhol in a similar way compared to other artists of the time, such as Wayne Thiebaud, Japer Johns and Tom Wesselmann.
The artists’ first collaboration was for the Sticky Fingers album cover, in the 1971. Mick Jagger described Warhol as nothing more than a voyeur in a tour documentary in 1972, but admiration grew over the years. Both Warhol and Jagger realized that the other could help build their image. Their relationship and collaborations over the years was partly a business arrangement with lavish rock-star parties.
