The Banksy painting that was destroyed fetches almost 19 million euros at auction

Love is in the bin, the work of street art creator Bansky, has reached the price of 16 million pounds (about 18.9 million euros) on Thursday at an auction at Sotheby’s. When formalizing the purchase, the auctioneer finished it off with a “and there it goes”, in relation to the destruction it suffered the first time, for just over one million euros three years ago, and which has caused its revaluation.

The sale was made in the same room as the spectacular first auction of Girl with Balloon, the name that the work received before its partial destruction, an event that in itself became an artistic event, due to the intervention of Banksy himself. The starting price was between 4 and 6 million pounds.
