Andy Warhol

(American, 1928–1987)

1 of 15 continuous-tone instant photographic prints (Polacolor Type 108)

Sheet: 10.8 x 8.9 cm (4 1/4 x 3 1/2 in.)

Gift of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. 2013.108.l



During the 1970s, Warhol took tens of thousands of instant photographs, many for pleasure and some as studies for portraits. He edited, sequenced, and inserted select images into around 200 small albums including this one, which contains 15 images of Mick Jagger posing around the time of the Rolling Stones' 1975 Tour of the Americas. Jagger demonstrates the rock star's archetypal sexy slouch, pout, and "badboy" demeanor, but the intimacy and informality of the small snaps preserve a sense of the young man. In the screenprint portfolio that Warhol produced from other Polaroids made at the same sitting, the mortal is transformed into a larger-than-life rock idol.
