Sale Overview

Please note that all works are authenticated and will be offered with the new Certificates of Authenticity from Pest Control.

Please note that there is no lot 12 or lot 13.

'Banksy: I can’t believe you morons actually buy this sh*t’ is cheekily titled in homage to the artist’s Morons screenprint. The source image of this work is a photograph of the record-breaking sale of Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers at Christie’s in 1987, with van Gogh’s canvas replaced by Banksy’s text.

The auction will be led by the rare Girl with Balloon (Colour AP - Gold) and features some of the artist’s best-known and coveted screenprints, including a signed impression of Rude Copper.
