Sotheby’s is preparing to sell “Show Me the Monet” by British street artist Banksy as part of its Modernités/Contemporary auction on Oct. 21.
Banksy left a note for hospital staff, saying: “Thanks for all you’re doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if (it’s) only black and white.”
“The Drinker” was set to go under the hammer on Nov. 19 as part of Sotheby’s Curated Contemporary sale, before being pulled out at the last minute.
The vehicle, entitled “Turbo Zone Truck (Laugh Now But One Day We’ll Be in Charge)”, is an early artwork by Banksy dating back to 2000.
