Rare MJ portrait up for grabs online

Posted on: April 8, 2010

The only portrait King of Pop Michael Jackson ever sat for is up for grabs online.

Jackson posed for the first and the last time when Australian painter and sculptor Brett Livingstone Strong persuaded him to sit for a portrait in 1990.

The portrait had Jackson sitting in a virtual room. The late legend is holding a book and wearing a frilled velvet jacket. Japanese businessman Hiromichi Saeki bought the painting the same year for 1.4 million pounds, reports The Daily Star.

Toy inventor Marty Abrams then possessed the painting in 1992. It was a payment of debt by Hiromichi to Abrams, and is still owned by Marty. The painting is now seeking a new owner.

The artwork has been listed on ebay.com and the auction ends on April 12 2010.

Abrams said that the value of the portrait in 2000 was 3.5 million pounds. But after the death of the legendary singer, the portrait might sell for quite a handsome amount.

“I”ve had it an awful long time. With the positive response to his music and the movie about him after his death, we thought it was a good time to sell it and for the world to see it,” he said.
