NY Gallery Resumes Sale Of Warhol's Jackson

Posted: Updated:
EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - An Andy Warhol portrait of Michael Jackson is back on the auction block at a New York art gallery.

The Vered Gallery in East Hampton, N.Y., removed the painting from a sale that closed last Sunday.

Gallery co-owner Janet Lehr said Thursday it's again available to the highest bidder.

The 30-by-26-inch painting shows a smiling Jackson in a red jacket from his 1980s "Thriller" days.

It's owned by a private collector.

Because of renewed interest in all things Jackson since his death, Lehr says it's anyone's guess how much the painting might fetch.

Prospective buyers must register with the gallery to bid via e-mail, telephone or in person. The auction closes Aug. 18.
