Yesterday, Sotheby’s closed its online sale solely featuring prints by British street artist Bansky. The sale achieved a total of £1.1 million ($1.4 million) offering a total of 25 lots and seeing a 96% sell through rate.
The sale was led by the artist’s most widely recognized image Girl with Balloon realizing a price of £375,000. Among the other works which saw high bidding was Bomb Love, a 2003 screenprint featuring the image of a young woman embracing a bomb against a bright pink background. The work saw a total of 22 bids before reaching its selling price of £27,500 and more than doubling its high estimate of £9,000. The house also boasted new auction records for a selection of Banksy’s iconic prints including Gangsta Rat, Love Rat, Di-Faced Tenners, Applause and Grannies.
