MICHAEL JACKSON UNVEILS "THE BOOK" PORTRAIT YOUTUBE VIDEO

MICHAEL JACKSON UNVEILS "THE BOOK" PORTRAIT

In this one timeless portrait, we capture one of the most talented musicians in the world, painted by one of the most talented artists of our time, Brett-Livingstone Strong, hailed by the King of Pop as "A modern day Michelangelo", in the ultimate expression of beauty.

"We called it, 'The Book,'" Mr. Strong said. 'What are you going to put in 'The Book' today, Michael?'" The backdrop is Neverland, with an image of Tinkerbell. The painting has touches of Vermeer, as that was one of Mr. Jackson's favorite painters, Mr. Strong said.

"The Book" is said to be the only portrait Michael personally posed for during his lifetime. In 1990, in Los Angeles, CA the portrait was unveiled in the presence of Mr. Hiromichi Saeki who reportedly paid $2,100,000 for the original. Mr. Saeki was one of the most influential Japanese merchandisers and concert promoters of Michael Jackson.

The painting is owned by two toy inventors, Marty Abrams and John Gentilly, who received the painting in 1992 from a Japanese businessman who had bought it to make good on a debt he owed the inventors.

Currently, the painting is being displayed at the Dancy-Power Automotive at Lenox Avenue and West 129th in Harlem, chosen in part because it is owned by a friend of Mr. Abrams and also because it is near the Apollo Theater, where the Jackson 5 won an amateur night competition in 1967.

I think having it in Harlem near the Apollo Theater is a great place for it to be displayed.
