Banksy’s work called Show Me Your Monet will be up for sale at an auction. After what happened, it is not easy to have no doubts. The Banksy side has been quite active recently.
Banksy’s work Show Me Your Monet will be on sale very soon. According to The Guardian’s report, the work on one of Monet’s Impressionist masterpieces is estimated to be sold for around £ 3 to £ 5 million
