Christie’s is looking for a thrill on November 10, 2009. The auction house is sending an Andy Warhol portrait ofMichael Jackson under the gavel, with a presale estimate of between $500,000 and $700,000. The piece, measuring 30 inches by 26 inches, is one of a small collection of silk-screens the King of Pop Art created of the King of Pop in 1984.
The Jackson piece is being sold by an anonymous collector in New York, according to Brett Gorvy, the deputy chairman of Christie’s. The current owner purchased it from the Andy Warhol foundation sometime in the 1990s.
Forty-six lots will be auctioned along with the Jackson portrait, and there will be two other paintings by Warhol.
Back in August, a similar Jackson painting by Warhol was sold. The buyer chose to remain anonymous, and nobody will reveal the price … except to say that it went for more than $1 million.

  6. This is sooo sad. Of course we all knew that there were going to be ppl trying to cash out of their MJ collectibles. My mom owns an original ALBUM from the 80s and a Jackson 5 album from the 70s I believe. My brother tried to talk her into putting them up for sale & I was LIVID!

    So of course I made a call and a trip home to express how I felt about the situation. And since I was much younger I’ve been claiming those albums as mine to keep forever anyway. To me things like that can never be sold

  7. Yes everyone Too many. But just like @Heatha77 I got my tickets for Sunday Morning. So excited! And have to get my CD tomorrow should have did amazon or something so I won’t be fighting no one over the last CD Lol
