It is a generous artist who lets the entire sale amount go to the health care system.
A fierce bidding war at auction house Christie’s ended with the highest price for a Banksy image ever. The buyer is anonymous.
The picture shows a little boy holding up a nurse doll, while a Batman and a Spiderman figure have ended up in a rubbish bin.
The picture was first seen at Southampton Hospital on the south coast of England in the first phase of the corona pandemic in May last year.
The profits from Tuesday’s auction will go to charities that support the UK’s healthcare system. The picture will still have a place at Southampton Hospital.
