Andy Warhol, one of the leading figures in pop art, did a silk-screened portrait of Michael Jackson in 1984. This portrait is being auctioned off by Christie’s in New York City starting on November 10th and is expected to fetch any where from $500,000 to $700,000.
Jackson’s portrait would certainly make an awesome addition to the Andy Warhol museum in Pittsburgh (Warhol’s hometown). If you travel to Pittsburgh and enjoy modern art, a trip to this museum is a great way to spend some time. I am looking forward to my next trip!
The Andy Warhol museum is located at 117 Sandusky St., Pittsburgh, PA 15212. Voice (412) 237-8300. Website: http://www.warhol.org
