"Recycling" Micheal J. Portrait Could Benefit Harlem Arts

A Harlem luxury car dealership, who allegedly owns the only portrait for which Micheal Jackson ever posed, is talking to auction houses about putting the art up for sale. Dancy-Power Automotive Group owns the painting entitled The Book, which depicts MJ in a fairy-tale like setting with a statue of Peter Pan in the background. It was created by Aussie artist Brett Livingstone Strong and originally sold for 2.1 million dollars in 1990. Dancy-Power plans to donate some of the proceeds of the sale of the portrait to the Harlem School of Arts.
