Michael Jackson's art collection

ART HISTORY - Years ago when Michael Jackson sold off one of his houses he accidentally misplaced his art collection.

An opportunistic man managed to snatch up Michael Jackson's collection and started selling it over the internet and Michael had to sue him to get his collection back, which he eventually did succeed in doing.

But by the time Michael got his collection back the secret contents of it had become well-documented by the court case.

The thing about Michael Jackson's collection was its unusual theme of naked boys. The sample shown here is just one of hundreds of pieces from his collection depicting children, often with little or no clothes on.

Now that Michael Jackson is dead his collection is being slowly sold off, but I have to question... who would buy this?

Amazingly there are devout Michael Jackson fans out there who still refuse to believe that Michael Jackson was bisexual and a pedophile. They somehow turn a blind eye to all the lawsuits Michael Jackson settled by paying out vast numbers of dollars because all the lawyers involved knew he was guilty. He tried to keep it as quiet as he could.

You could also analyze the lyrics of his songs like "Keep it in the Closet" or you could survey his art collection in books like "Michael Jackson Opus: The Ultimate Celebration of an Icon", but the end result is still dubious at best. We have to assume that the really explicit art pieces from his collection will never make it into print. The kind of artwork that would probably make Robert Mapplethorpe blush.

Fans will no doubt take it as a matter of faith and try to ignore such things.

The piece above by artist David Nordahl was commissioned by Michael Jackson in 1999.
