About the image
Photographed across two days at the historic Sarum Chase Estate in West London and Swarkestone Hall Pavillion in Derbyshire, the Beggar's Banquet series includes some of the most intricate compositions in all of Rock & Roll photography. 

The photographs taken at Swarkestone were initially intended to be used for the front and back covers of the album sleeve, the Sarum Chase images for inside.

This composition is one or two "clicks" away from the actual image that was used inside the gatefold of the Beggars Banquet album. 

Michael Joseph commented in an interview once about his experience shooting the Stones, that after their first session, held on June 7th, 1968, he quickly printed up a black & white photograph from Sarum Chase and showed it to Mick the follwing day. Mick loved the image, but took the photograph and hand coloured it, and that is the actual piece they used for the album packaging.
