Mick Jagger 138 was painted 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 daughter, Jade, whom Andy taught how to paint. He produced this screenprint of Mick Jagger as part of a portfolio of 10 in 1975. Mick Jagger 138 is one of several pieces that Andy Warhol did on Mick Jagger. In 1969 the Rolling Stones worked on their ninth studio album Sticky Fingers. The band approached Andy Warhol and asked him to design its sleeve. 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 Jaggers warning and went on to produce an unforgettable cover that featured a close-up shot of actor and Warhol superstar Joe Dallesandros.
