Images of Jagger and the Rolling Stones from the Gallery’s Collection are on view alongside a selection of new acquisitions.

The gallery’s collection of Jagger portraits began in 1972 with a gift by Cecil Beaton of a portrait of Jagger in Morocco.

The new acquisitions on display include a portrait of the singer with his Aston Martin by Gered Mankowitz, and a previously unexhibited colour photograph by Colin Jones dated 1967.

Mick Jagger: Young in the 60s at the National Portrait Gallery, London was inspired by a major survey of portraits of Jagger from 1964 to 2008 shown at last year’s Les Rencontres d’Arles. The display also coincides with the publication of Mick Jagger: The Photobook by Thames & Hudson which includes over 70 images spanning the fifty years of Jagger’s career.
