Book: Philip Norman «Mick Jagger»

Mick Jagger

Is he Jumpin' Jack Flash? A Street Fighting Man? A Man of Wealth and Taste? All this, it turns out, and far more. By any definition, Mick Jagger is a force of nature, a complete original - and undeniably one of the dominant cultural figures of our time. Swaggering, strutting, sometimes elusive, always spellbinding, he grabbed us by our collective throat a half-century ago and - unlike so many of his gifted peers - never let go. For decades, Mick has jealously guarded his many shocking secrets - until now.

Philip Norman

Philip E Norman FSA (9 July 1842 - 17 May 1931) was a British artist, author and antiquary.

Biography

Born in 1842 in Bromley, he was the son of George Warde Norman (1793-1882) and brother of Frederick Henry Norman, the merchant banker.

He was educated at Eton College where he was a notable cricketer, and where, at the age of 17, he won the 120 yards hurdle race in the then record time of 18 seconds. He was later to play one season of first-class cricket in 1865 with the Gentlemen of Kent.

He was trained as a draughtsman and painter in watercolours at the Slade School, often exhibiting at the Royal Academy. A large part of his work consisted of depicting parts of London that he knew, particularly buildings or areas which stood as a survivor of a bygone past or which were about to be demolished. Norman also recorded the history of the buildings which he painted or photographed, and works such as "London Vanished and Vanishing", written in 1905, provide a fascinating record of bygone London. The historian Hermione Hobhouse has described Norman as one-third of the "triumvirate" of key figures whose works record the topography of London between 1890 and 1950, the others being Walter Hindes Godfrey and Percy Wells Lovell.

Norman was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1886, acting as Treasurer from 1897 to 1913 and Vice-President from 1913 to 1917.

He died in 1931 in South Kensington at the age of 88. His photographs are now held by the National Monuments Record and his watercolour paintings and drawings of London are kept by the Victoria and Albert Museum.
