Michael Jackson and Bubbles by Jeff, Koons Will This Now Quadruple In Price?

It's a scary prospect but will the death of Michael Jackson drive this kitsch trinket to become one the worlds most valuable works of contemporary art by a living artist? It is quite possible that the new phenomenon of 'fan art' will kick start a new season of auction records for Jeff Koons, the artist with the foresight to subject the pop-star by immortalizing him in gilt porcelain. The sculpture originally sold in 1988 for $250,000. in 2001 another example of the edition sold at auction for a staggering $5.6 million I cant wait to follow this. Leave your comments below.
