Banksy At Auction

A Few Banksys at Bonhams

At Bonhams Vision 21 Sale in Knightsbridge today, a few hard to find Banksy pieces went under the hammer.  Nothing quite as exciting as last month’s sales, but interesting to see the highly desirable Christ With Shopping Bags print come up for sale.

So there we have it, pretty strong showing overall from a sale dominated by artists not usually associated with Banksy, on the basis that the Banksy lots all either exceeded or met their reserves.
