  • Show me the Monet, le tableau de l’artiste urbain britannique Banksy parodiant les Nymphéas de Claude Monet a été vendu mercredi à Londres 7,6 millions de livres, a annoncé la maison d’enchères Sotheby’s

À Londres, un tableau de Bansky vient d'être vendu 7,6 millions de livres (environs 8,4 millions d'euros), a indiqué la maison d'enchères Sotheby's.

Le tableau en question, intitulé "Show me the Monet " et fait en 2005, est une revisite du célèbre "Bassin aux nymphéas " signé Claude Monet, l'un des plus fameux impressionnistes français. Dans l'eau: des plots de signalisation orange et un vieux caddy.

Les amateurs de l'univers de Banksy y reconnaîtront sans hésitation la touche personnelle de Banksy, particulièrement attaché aux questions environnementales.

"Banksy met ici en lumière le mépris de la société pour l'environnement face aux excès de gaspillage du consumérisme", a estimé dans un communiqué Alex Branczik, responsable européen de l'art contemporain chez Sotheby's, qui voit dans le mystérieux artiste originaire de Bristol un "visionnaire".

Cinq collectionneurs se sont disputé l'oeuvre pendant près de neuf minutes d'enchères en ligne.
