Equestrian Portrait of King Philip II (Michael Jackson), 2010, by Kehinde Wiley, combines the face of the late musician with a portrait of the Spanish king who was the husband of Mary Tudor. It is among the artworks in the exhibition “Michael Jackson: On the Wall”, which explores Jackson’s influence on the work of more than 40 artists since Andy Warhol first used his image in 1982. It runs at the Wolfson and Lerner Galleries in the National Portrait Gallery, St Martin’s Place, London WC2, until 21 October. Phone 020 7306 0055. npg.org.uk
