Ronnie Wood unveiled a new Pablo Picasso-inspired painting he completed of The Rolling Stones, and Mick Jagger is featured in the painting sans clothing.

Wood’s painting was completed in 2020 be it received a grand debut as a billboard on Wood Lane (get it!) in London’s Shepherd’s Bush neighborhood.

Per Billboardthe painting, dubbed “Abstract Performance,” is part of a series of paintings by the guitarist, and Jagger is actually nude in all of them.

Why? According to Wood, “He’s nude in all of them, because I got the original inspiration from a Picasso piece called ‘The Dancers’ and they were all prancing about in the nude. And I thought, why not? You know, it’s a good form of expression.

“Abstract Performance” is available for purchase for a limited time from now until February 14 at RonnieWood.com and can be viewed below.
