Bianca Jagger, once famously married to Rolling Stones lead singer Mick Jagger, was a photographic favorite of Andy Warhol. In this dynamic portrait, Jagger’s face is shown in a dramatic three-quarter profile while her jet-black curly hair flows freely behind her and into the upper left corner of the image. The plunging neckline of her haltered garment draws the viewer’s attention directly to her sultry features and stylized makeup. This image is a slight departure from Warhol’s standard white powdered figure and white background. In this image he has used Jagger’s black garment and hair to create a more flattering and bold image.
