Banksy’s 2005 painting, Show Me the Monet, is set to be unloaded by means of Sotheby’s on October 21. An entertainment of Claude Monet’s The Water Lily Pond from 1899, the work by the British street artist is relied upon to get upwards of $6.4 million.

Show Me the Monet was disclosed at Banksy’s “Crude Oils: A Gallery of Re-mixed Masterpieces, Vandalism and Vermin” presentation in London in 2005. The show featured 21 other works which found the elusive artist reinterpreting paintings by older artists.

Banksy included shopping baskets and a splendid orange traffic cone to Monet’s The Water Lily Pond for his Show Me the Monet, apparently referring to human inclination to cause natural harm. As implied above, he has reproduced various different artworks in a comparable light throughout the long term, including works by Vincent van Gogh and Andy Warhol, among others.
