"Present Me the Monet", considered one of a number of reworkings of basic work that Banksy known as his "Crude Oils" assortment, was anticipated to get between $three.9 million to $6.5 million at public sale Wednesday.

An oil portray by the notorious street artist that depicted an idyllic Claude Monet scene blighted by discarded gadgets has fetched the second-highest value ever paid for considered one of his works. Banksy's "Show Me the Monet" playful take on a famous Impressionist painting has sold to an unidentified bidder at auction on Wednesday evening October 21, 2020, for 7.6 million pounds (US dollars 9.8 million).

The highest auction price for a Banksy is roughly 9.9 million pounds, or close to 13 million dollars, for his 2009 piece "Devolved Parliament".

It was sold at a Sotheby's event in London on Wednesday following a near nine-minute battle between five collectors, the auction house said. The second most expensive Banksy piece the art world has seen at auction, the piece is a parody of Monet's water lily paintings with added traffic cones and shopping trollies.

Banksy has become a household name since the turn of the century, after his iconic graffiti paintings began to appear overnight on buildings and at sites around the world.

Sotheby's European head of contemporary art Alex Branczik said of the painting: "In one of his most important paintings, Banksy has taken Monet's iconic depiction of the Japanese bridge in the Impressionist master's famous garden at Giverny and transformed it into a modern-day fly-tipping spot".

In 2018 his "Girl With The Balloon" partially shredded itself as the hammer came down at Sotheby's, becoming the retitled "Love Is In The Bin".
