Andy Warhol's Michael Jackson Portrait Sells For Over A Million

August 20, 2009
Andy Warhol's Michael Jackson Portrait Sells For Over A MillionAndy Warhol's 1984 portrait of Michael Jackson has sold at auction for over $1million.

The auction took place at The Vered Gallery in Long Island, New York with the painting going to an anonymous bidder.

The gallery has remained tight-lipped about the exact price, but it was confirmed that the portrait sold for in excess of $1million (£600,000 approx).

Warhol painted the 76cm x 66cm piece to celebrate the phenomenal success of Michael Jackson's defining album 'Thriller'.
