Jacko going, going, gone
LOS ANGELES: Christie’s auction house will offer a portrait of Michael Jackson by Andy Warhol in New York on November 10.
The auction house said on Friday that the portrait should fetch an estimated $500 000 to $700 000 (R3.7-R5.1 million). It is one of a small group of Warhol silk-screened images of Jackson created in 1984.
The painting depicts Jackson smiling in a Thriller-era jacket, with squiggles of red and yellow in his hair. – Sapa-AP
