Andy Warhol is best known for helping to cultivate the pop art movement, giving it a grounding in celebrity and mass consumer culture throughout the 1960s and 70s. He is widely remembered for his vibrant portraits of Marilyn Monroe, his iconic Campbell’s Soup Can paintings, and the notorious parties he hosted at Studio 54, attended by socialites and celebrities including Bianca Jagger and Edie Sedgwick.
Mick Jagger 142 is one of many famous artworks created by Andy Warhol. The work was created in 1945 and it measures 43 X 29″ in screenprint on arches aquarelle rough paper. This artwork was created at a time when Warhol was at the peak of his career and was also at the helm of fame. He spent most of the time with Mick Jagger and taught his daughter how to paint, and therefore, the artwork is a representation of a series of Mick Jagger’s screenprints. The work is created by a pencil, one of Warhol’s signature features. Also, at the bottom of the art, there is Jagger’s signature written in felt pen. The screenplay is created from a more playful use of colors, unlike other screenprints in the series which are more blasé and stoic. The colors incorporated in the prints include shades of blue and yellow, which complements the soft laugh demonstrated by Jagger in the screenprint.
As demonstrated, Warhol is fascinated with fame, and therefore, he could not resist but create a portfolio about Mick Jagger. Looking more into the life of Jagger, Warhol seeks to present an interesting look into the film and acting histories of America, especially considering the fact that Jagger is one of the most famous actors, film producers, and songwriters ever known.
