Fantastic complete ten postcard set of Andy Warhol's Mick Jagger screenprint series from 1975, each 4 x 6, and signed on the front in purple felt tip by Warhol. Reverse of each card is numbered and features matching collector's date notations of May 17, 1977. In overall fine condition. Having first met in 1963, Andy Warhol and Mick Jagger formed a working relationship during the height of their fame in the early 1970s. Consisting of ten photos he had taken of the Rolling Stones frontman, the series of screen prints vividly represented Warhol's stylistic shift from found imagery to a more 'handmade' approach, paying tribute to his friend and subject with neutral tones, bursts of color, and a marked focus on Jagger's sex appeal and rock star persona. A highly sought-after and seldom-offered collection.
