Mick Jagger, 1975

Warhol, Andy

New York. Multiples Inc. / Castelli Graphics. 1975
An exceptional example of the prospectus / catalogue for Andy Warhol's portfolio of screenprints of Mick Jagger with each of the cards and the cover signed in black marker by Warhol.

This prospectus / catalogue for Warhol's famed series of screenprint portraits of the Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger includes a card of each of the published screenprints in a printed wrapper with the edition details to the interior. This exceptional example, from the collection of Warhol's friend and collaborator, the distinguished gallerist and collector William Burke (known by his middle name William), features Warhol's signature to each of the cards as well as the front cover of the wrapper. For over a decade Burke lived in the Paris apartment of Warhol's business manager in the rue du Cherche-Midi, the apartment in which Warhol stayed when visiting Paris. Warhol described Burke, who had worked for Galerie Ileana Sonnabend before opening his own gallery la Remise du Parc in the late '70s, as 'our man in Paris'.
