The King of Pop and the King of Pop Art

A Warhol portrait of Michael Jackson went on show in London this Thursday for 3 days in the lead-up to an auction in New York where it will go under the hammer on August 18 at the Vered Gallery, starting with an opening bid of $800,000, but where it certainly will be fetching much more with the now renewed interest in all things MJ.
The highest priced Warhol portrait is “Lemon Marilyn” sold at Christie's New York in 2007 for $28.040.000 .

    Bonjour! Cedric,
    I agree with you wholeheartedly, I think that this Warhol portrait of singer Micheal Jackson, (will/may?!? ) go for more than the asking price of...$800,000,
    Merci, for sharing!
    DeeDee ;-D

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
