(ANI): Late King of Pop Michael Jackson once apparently lost an art
masterpiece bid to Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone. Manhattan art
collector Stuart Pivar recalled the time when the 'Thriller' star
paid a visit to his Central Park West duplex to see 19th-century
French painter William Bouguereau's masterpiece 'Pieta'.
The singer was said to have been transfixed with the
12-foot-tall painting of Mary holding a dead Jesus. "He said one
word over and over during that whole time 'Awesome'!" the New York
Post quoted Pivar as saying.
Jackson reportedly sent his entourage into the foyer later,
while he kept admiring the masterpiece. However, Stallone allegedly
put in his bid first.
