Announcing the Debut of the Jackson Seven
Whelan Galleries introduces a collector's edition set of prints featuring art purchased by its most
famous client--Michael Jackson.
(PRWEB) November 28, 2009 -- A collection of seven exquisite signed giclee prints by artist Patrick Whelan
representing works acquired by the late King of Pop and art aficionado Michael Jackson is being offered on a
limited basis to the public as of November 27th, 2009. Additionally, all of the net profit will be donated to Mr.
Jackson's "Heal The World" charity in honor of the entertainer's own immense contributions to art and to culture.
And also to help carry on the spirit of his efforts towards easing the pain and suffering of children from around the
All of the featured works were acquired in the late spring of 2009, during the time when he was practicing for his
upcoming London concerts and actually creating the footage for what became, instead, the amazing film "This Is
It". These were some of the very last paintings added to his collection, in addition to being his single largest art
purchase made during this period. They were, in fact, delivered to the pop stars Holmby Hills mansion less than
two weeks before his tragic and unexpected passing on June the 25th.
Mr. Jackson demonstrated his amazing eye for quality and taste in selecting some of the finest prints and original
oils in the Whelan portfolio. Among the works chosen were three classic book cover paintings depicting "Alice In
Wonderland", "Peter Pan", and "The Buccaneers" as well as some of the strongest fine art masterworks available.
These latter included among others, MJ's personal favorite, "Meditations", a golden angelic figure with her eyes
closed and head resting on one knee.
Long time Jackson fan Patrick Whelan remembers watching a special on television several years ago in which
MJ was walking through a gallery choosing various paintings and Mr. Whelan was thinking that the pieces
selected were somewhat similar to the type of work that he produced. T
