England-based street artist Banksy’s reimagining of Claude Monet’s Impressionist water lilies painting, ‘Show me the Monet’, sold for more than £7.5m (€8.4m, $9.8m) during the auction led by Sotheby’s in London on Wednesday.
The competitive bidding battle between five collectors lasted nine minutes, before exceeding expectations and fetching for £7,551,600.
It was a client of Sotheby’s chairman of Asia, Patti Wong, who won the bid.
The painting becomes Banksy’s second most expensive artwork sold at auction, after ‘Devolved Parliament’ which sold for £9.9m last year
