The Gallery's holdings of portraits of Mick Jagger, began with this gift from Cecil Beaton of his portrait of Jagger taken in Morocco in 1967. Beaton wrote in his diary: 'At last an opportunity to photograph one of the most elusive people, whom I admire and am fascinated by, not determined whether he is beautiful or hideous.' Beaton added: 'Mick talked of the struggles to success...and now it had come...He would like a house somewhere with thirty acres. They'd worked so hard.' (Beaton in the Sixties: More Unexpurgated Diaries, Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2003)
