Michael Jackson, King Of Pop Art

Diana Evans writes: ‘An exhibition at London’s National Portrait Gallery gathers together the work of forty-eight disparate artists exploring the legacy of perhaps the most frequently depicted cultural figure in history, and his fame is their common palette. Michael Jackson is inseparable from this astronomical celebrity…It glows with a bright, mournful edge from every one of these artworks, probing what might have been if his success had not in some way required, or at least contributed to, his eventual annihilation.’
