One of the most popular and successful singers of the past 40 years has been George Michael. He sold more than 100 million albums. However, he died in 2016 at the age of 53. The news of his death came as a huge shock to his millions of fans around the world. He left much more behind than a great body of musical work. He also left behind a massive art collection that he began collecting in 2005. He had always been very passionate about art. He had thought about starting his own collection for many years. He finally decided to do it and he took his collection very seriously.
The people who are in charge of his estate decided to sell all of his artwork and donate the money to many charities that Michael supported during his life. He was known for his various charitable activities. The auction was a huge success. The entire lot of artwork sold for $15 million. This was far more than the estate thought the artwork would fetch at auction. The people who control Michael’s estate are confident that he would want the money to go to charity. He made many secret donations to charities for many years that were not revealed until after his death.
George Michael was a fan of many different types of art. However, he preferred newer pieces that were created during the past 20 years by the newest generation of British artists. He even had a few portraits of himself in his collection. His collection was very diverse. This is why it appealed to a wide range of buyers during the auction. Many of the pieces were sold over the course of a week via an online auction platform. It is becoming more common for the large auction houses to sell items online because they will be able to reach a larger group of buyers.
George Michael left a great legacy. His music will continue to entertain for many generations to come. The millions of dollars that he donated to charity during his life and after his death will help to make the world a better place. He also had several provisions written into his will which directed some of his money to be donated to various charities and schools. Michael did not have any money when he was young. Therefore, he always loved to help people who were less fortunate.
