Rare works by subversive street artist Banksy were on display before the auction deadline later this month.
Entitled Banksy: I Can’t Believe You Morons Really Buy This Sh * t, the name of Christie’s online-only sale pays homage to the famous Banksy Morons silkscreen print.
Morons is based on a photograph from the record-breaking sale of Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers in 1987, with van Gogh’s canvas replaced by Banksy’s text.
The auction includes Girl With Balloon (Color AP – Gold) which is expected to fetch between £ 800,000 and £ 1.2 million.
Two color variations on Banksy’s famous Kate Moss work could cost as much as £ 250,000 each, the auctioneers have said.
His can of soup – White / Emerald / Tan is also up for grabs and could fetch up to £ 80,000.
The sale also features some of the artist’s best-known silkscreen prints, including a signed print by Rude Copper, which is expected to sell for between £ 100,000 and £ 150,000.
The works are on display in Christie’s auction house in central London.
The auctions are open until September 23.
