Michael Jackson is part of some posthumous philanthropy benefiting one school in Harlem.
Dancy-Power Automotive Group, a Harlem luxury car dealership, is looking to auction off an oil painting of Michael Jackson entitled “The Book” that’s worth $2.1 million.
If the dealer is able to put “The Book” up for bid, then part of the procceds will go to the Harlem School of the Arts, but there’s no word on how much of those profits the school would see.
The painting was named after a book that was very dear to Michael, and he’s portrayed holding the tome in “The Book.” The 40” x 50” portrait actually features three images of Michael. Most obviously, there’s one in the foreground, but if you take a close look, you’ll see that another version of him is standing in the background posing for another portrait that a painter is working on.
If you’re in New York and would like to see the painting for yourself, it’s currently hanging up at the Dancy-Power Automotive Group.
