THE ROLLING STONES
World Tour 1969–70

I created this poster in September 1969 for Alan Klein, the Stones’ manager. It was based on one of Muybridge’s “Figures in Motion” against an Islamic motif. The box at the bottom was for the venue overprint. Mick Jagger commented that he thought it “looks like me in drag.” This was the tour that ended in the notorious Hell’s Angels incident at Altamont in 1970. This poster is pretty much forgotten & was not included in The Art of Rock.

Ink line and transparent dyes on white board. Figure on toned paper in pencil and chalk.
