When Banksy ‘Remixed’ Monet and Other Masterpieces


Journey back to 2005 when Banksy’s now-legendary ‘Crude Oils’ exhibition made headline news. This old Channel 4 news report features ‘Show Me The Monet’, Banksy’s ‘remix’ of Claude Monet’s Japanese Bridge at Giverny, transformed into a modern-day fly-tipping spot. A comment on consumerist culture or a lament for the demise of the environment? Find out what Banksy had to say about it in this video. ‘Show Me The Monet’ is set to become another big Banksy moment at Sotheby’s when it stars in our upcoming Contemporary Art Evening Auction (21 October | London). Watch the auction live at 7:00 PM BST on sothebys.com.
