From the Knabe Mankowitz Collection, special collaboration between Walter Knabe, an American multi-disciplinary fine artist, and renowned English rock and roll photographer, Gered Mankowitz.
The third release in the Knabe Mankowitz Collection is Mick Jagger, titled Mick ‘65. The edition of 200 was created using a color photo shot by Mankowitz at RCA studios in Hollywood, California at the end of the Rolling Stones tour in 1965. The tour, which was a great success, is reflected in Jagger’s smiling face.

Knabe and Mankowitz worked together to create artwork that reflected not only the 1965 “Peace and Love” vibe, but also captured the classic, young Mick. A fluorescent paisley shirt, accented pink lips and a slight upturned smirk embodies the iconic look of the blue-eyed Jagger.
The 27” x 18” piece is signed by both Knabe and Mankowitz. It blends Knabe’s signature hand crafted screen printing and hand painted detail using 14 paint colors intricately layered on heavy, tactile paper.
Mankowitz established his first studio in London’s Mason’s Yard in 1963 in what was to become the heart of 60’s swinging London. He began working in the U.K. music industry at a time when it needed mould breaking images. Mankowitz's work with Jimi Hendrix and The Experience produced some of the most iconic and widely known portraits of the musician.
Mankowitz has continued working in the music world over the last 50 years and also shoots other genres of the commercial photography industry including editorial and advertising, and contributes to leading magazines. He has published multiple photography books of his images and co-created/executive produced on six-part TV series “ICON – Music Through The Lens”, on PBS in the USA. Mankowitz resides in Cornwall County in south west England.
