Ronnie Wood: Artist - including a signed framed portrait of Ronnie with Charlie Watts by Ronnie Wood
The Art Edition
Title Page and Framed Portrait Hand Signed by Ronnie Wood
New and Unread
Offering fresh insight into the creative processes of a rock’n’roll legend, RONNIE WOOD: ARTIST charts six decades of Ronnie Wood’s art in every medium, from his first-ever commission at age ten to his latest Stones setlists.
Continuing the creative partnership which began in 1998 with Ronnie's sold-out volume, WOOD ON CANVAS, Genesis is delighted to publish this new guide to Ronnie’s art presented as a signed book and framed print set.
Made with creative input and insights from Ronnie himself, and published in the year of his 70th birthday, RONNIE WOOD: ARTIST is filled with a generous selection of his Stones work. Rare watercolours of Mick, Keith and Charlie backstage meet acrylics of contemporaries Rod Stewart, Jeff Beck and Keith Moon. Portraits of formative jazz innovators Count Basie, Miles Davis and Billie Holiday sit alongside blues heroes Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters and Big Bill Broonzy. Paintings of Hollywood’s elite – Paul Newman, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe – juxtapose real-time fashion sketches of Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell and deft pastel compositions from his residency at the Royal Ballet. The work demonstrates Ronnie’s artistic range, with media varying from pencil sketches to pen and ink, washes, chalk, pastels, oils, and even bronzes and stained glass. Specially commissioned photo shoots in Ronnie’s four homes have captured his personal collections, from sketchbooks to private canvases.
Numbered from 1 to 250 and signed by Ronnie Wood, each book is quarter-bound in navy leather with foil blocking and gilt page edging. The book’s cover features a painting of the Rolling Stones performing at the Super Bowl in 2006, an oil painting that is now owned by President Bill Clinton. Presented in a navy and red cloth-bound slipcase. Page extent: 272 pages; page size: 20.7 x 26.7 cm / 8 x 10½ inches.
The Artword: During a trip to Japan in 2014, Ronnie created a series of mixed media pieces combining collaged newspaper cuttings with washes of colour onto a monoprint base. This work from the series features a portrait of Ronnie with Charlie Watts and is made available exclusively for Genesis subscribers. The signed and numbered Giclée on heavyweight Somerset paper is float mounted with a white wood frame and a UV-protective glaze.
About the Author:
Ronnie Wood received formal art training at Ealing Art College before beginning his musical career, and throughout his time in the Jeff Beck Group, the Faces, and the Rolling Stones, he has constantly explored his passion for painting and drawing. He is well known for creating portraits of his bandmates, and rock’n’roll contemporaries, as well finding inspiration in landscapes, nudes, still lifes, and sculpture.
