Michael Jackson's Personal Artist captured singer's fantasies


USA TODAY, 8-23-09

Artist David Nordahl was at home painting in February 1988 when the phone rang at midnight. A voice said, "This is Michael Jackson."

<snip>

While visiting Steven Spielberg's office, Jackson had admired one of Nordahl's painting of Army troops invading an Apache camp as a young corporal shielded two Indian children. Now the singer was reaching out to the painter. For art lessons.

<snip>

From 1988 to 2005, Nordahl completed thousands of drawings and roughly a dozen epic commissions, seven of which were among the 2000 Jackson items in Julien's authorized auction, which the singer sued to stop last spring.

<snip>

Many canvasses encapsulated Jackson's grandiose fantasies and fairy-tale worldview.
