About the image
Sebastian Krüger's subjects are generally artists he admires a great deal, like this print of Stones legend Keith Richards. His portraits, while caricatures, always contain a great deal of kindness while at the same time thoroughly subverting "the world of beautiful appearances." This contradiction is at the heart of Krüger's work, a characteristic that has made him extremely popular with art connoisseurs all over the world. 

This portrait of Keith Richards was created after the first Pirates of the Caribbean film was made, after which Johhny Depp confessed that his character, Captain Jack Sparrow, was in part inspired by the real-life Keith Richards.  Richards later appeared in the third and fourth Pirates of the Caribbean films - At World's End (2007) and On Stranger Tides (2011) as Captain Teague - Sparrow's father.
