The painting was estimated at about 250-400 thousand dollars.
One of the most famous works of the anonymous artist, Banksy Girl with balloon self-destructed right after it was sold at Sotheby’s in London.
In 2006, the artist painted a single instance of painting with acrylic paints on canvas. The work was signed in a heavy gilt frame, which, as it turned out in the end, was embedded and Schroeder.
Originally the painting was estimated at about 250-400 thousand dollars, but during the auction it was sold for 1.4 million dollars. Immediately after the fall of the hammer in the frame turned on the paper shredder, which slashed the canvas to half into small strips.
Sotheby’s representatives have already contacted the buyer, he was “surprised”. Now we discuss the next steps. According to auction rules, the buyer can withdraw from the lot, if it was damaged. However, now the cost of the painting will only increase.
