Banksy's version of Monet's Water Lilies sold for nearly $10 mn

Oct 23, 2020 13:33 IST

Anonymous street artist Banksy's version of Monet's Water Lillies just fetched $9.8 million at a Sotheby's auction in London, making it the second highest price ever paid for the work by anonymous artist. It was sold to an unidentified bidder and surpassed its pre-sale estimates.

The 2005 creation, called 'Show me the Monet', had the classic water lilies picture filled with images of abandoned shopping trolleys and a traffic cone.

'Show me the Monet' is from a series of works called Crude Oils, which in Banksy's words includes remixes of canonical artworks.
